Ebb & Flow

Today I visited Grimsby to hang my work for the forthcoming 62 Group exhibition 'Ebb & Flow'. For this exhibition I have worked on a sequence of three large cyanotype prints on silk. The tryptic, called 'Baptism', explores the euphoric experience of cold water swimming. Through personal observations, the sensual awakening of the body is traced as shimmering stitched marks on the surface.





You can see this and work by many distinguished artists in Ebb & Flow at the Fishing Heritage Centre and Grimsby Minster, Grimsby, NE Lincolnshire from 9th September to 2nd November 2014. You can see some photos and read about the special events on the Ebb & Flow Facebook page.

  1. hannah, these prints are stunning! I really love how you've used cyanotype with stitching, photographs and then more traditional negatives - it adds a really wonderful depth.

    you'd probably really like the work of my friend Sally Ayre: http://www.sallyayre.com/

  3. These are just stunning, I have been watching their development with great interest.
    I don't do any printing so how you acheived this is for me very mysterious.

    1. Thanks very much Christine. 'On trend'... that's not something I strive for but I do believe there is often a certain zeitgeist... similar ideas floating about. 'Great minds think alike' and all that...
