Hannah Greenberg. Surreal Nature

| June 15, 2014

The ethereal work of Hannah Greenberg portrays a universe that is at once airy and grounded. Hannah’s art is centered in the imagery of the natural world: leaves on trees, the velvety feathers of birds, the unadorned human face and figure.

Hannah GreenbergThese simple subjects are lovingly rendered, and then animated by the forces of nature made visible. The artist depicts sweeping wind, warming rays of sun, and wild waters with lines that surround and elevate her figures. Organic patterns emerge, weaving the scene into a surreal tapestry. The other great player in the work is color, which knows no bounds in the landscape of Hannah’s art. The hues range from earthy to the gleaming pinks and oranges only found in the extremes of nature. Every object contains every color, and each tiny nuance of light is captured. Using color pencil and oil pastel, Hannah finds the delicacy that exists in every surface.
Hannah Greenberg began life on a kibbutz in Israel before emigrating to the United States. In addition to creating fine art, she is an accomplished jewelry designer.

About the Exhibition

In Evolving Abstraction, these artists reflect the beauty and complexity of the world they see through taking a step back and portraying them through the lens of artistic vision rather than with representational accuracy. Often experimental, the works are innovative in their quest to find the best tools and techniques to convey the idea that exists in the artist’s mind and share it with an audience hungry for a fresh perspective on what they see every day.
