Hannah Raisin’s new work echoes the artist’s interest in innate gravities and how they could relate to matrilineal connection and iconic femininity.
The work playfully reflects the artist’s transition into parenthood, from un-stem-able floods of colostrum to palpable elation and ultimately an all-consuming sensation of drowning in a bath of milk. Through video, sculpture and installation Colour force manifests the artist’s ongoing investigation into surface, connection and sensations of submersion.
Exhibition opens: 4-6pm Saturday 2 March 2019
