About Hannah Wade
Hannah Secord Wade received her MA Fine Art from Chelsea College, London, and her BA from Hampshire College, Amherst. Her work has been shown in London and Paris, and throughout the United States. In 2016, she was a resident at the Arteles Creative Center in Finland. She lives and works in Maine, USA.
Her work has focused on landscape for the past nine years, exploring themes of removal and fear, and a lack of control over my surroundings. She works on a project-by-project basis, with each series addressing a specific concern.
Her current series, Everything All Together, is a gathering of landscape and debris into large mounds, which function as both hoards and refuse piles.
As the series progresses, the piles are continually washed away and then rebuilt. The works deal with the tension of wanting to contain and guard pieces of my environment, and conversely, to throw them all away.
