Hannah Sullivan is a young artist living and working in Manchester. As a painter her work centres around reaction and chance. Inspired by organic, natural forces within everyday life, these are often the starting point of her work. When painting her attention is with surface, colour and paint’s physicality. In her work the surface acts like a gravitational pull to the other components of her process, the specific decisions made in relation to the surface texture and colour thereon inform the next reaction. Artificial or neon colours tend to be avoided in her work; she finds they create little relatability to her natural self, or the natural context of the work. By combining painting medias with unconventional worldly materials, it allows her to directly reference her natural influences whilst simultaneously creating inexhaustible, unknown outcomes. She can never be certain of how a painting is going look when it dries, how over time the paint will evolve with the other media, if overtime whether it will stay the same or diminish. The diminishing qualities to her paintings allow them to exist in similar ways to our surrounding natural counterparts and of course ourselves.
