It’s been a while but I’m back.

It’s been a while since I last posted on here, but now I’m back and will be posting regularly about my art work, and art work that I find inspirational.

To see more about what I’m doing, you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram. My name on both of those is @hannahlewisart.

Luke Smith: George

 

 

 

 

 

I believe we have arrived at a critical point within photography with what can only be described as a societal paranoia with the censoring of the child’s image. I believe if we are not careful we will contribute to a future of imagery without children present.

This piece of work is titled George which created the absence/loss of the child within the images. Each image has been constructed as an empty space with the trace of what took place.

This is my favourite project that I have seen so far, the ideas and how it has been carried out is brilliant.

‘I fink u freeky’ by Die Antwoord and Roger Ballen

I love this music video that was directed by Roger Ballen for the group Die Antwoord. I loved it because I see the video as a piece of art work compared to other music videos out there.

 

More of Roger Ballen’s work can be seen at his website rogerballen.com. Have a look.

Titles of my current project

The titles in this piece are really important, so important that I was planning to have the text and image together, but it wasn’t working out.
I chose to have these transfers instead of letrasets because I wanted something quick to put on the wall as I didn’t have much time.

Preview of current print

After doing much thinking I’ve decided that I’m going to mount my prints instead of framing them.
Here’s a preview of one of my prints.

Gillian Wearing and Out of Focus exhibitions

On Tuesday I went to two exhibitions “Gillian Wearing” at the White Chapel Gallery and “Out Of Focus” at the Saatchi Gallery. Both exhibitions were really good and interesting, I would recommend both to go and see.

A highlight for me at the Gillian wearing exhibition was the film “Bully” (2010) which is very powerful and emotional. It really showed that the effects of bullying can be left with a person for years and effect their everyday life.

Below are photographs from the exhibition

A highlight at the Out of focus exhibition was David Benjamin Sherry’s work. The colours and the sizes of the images worked well, in making them beautiful images.

Here are some other images from the Saatchi Gallery

The Help (2011)

Set in Mississippi during the 1960s, Skeeter (Stone) is a southern society girl who returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends’ lives — and a Mississippi town — upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Aibileen (Davis), Skeeter’s best friend’s housekeeper, is the first to open up — to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter’s life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories — and as it turns out, they have a lot to say. Along the way, unlikely friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges, but not before everyone in town has a thing or two to say themselves when they become unwittingly — and unwillingly — caught up in the changing times.

I’m going to buy the book because I really love this film and I’ve matched it many times. I recommend that you do the same.
