Thank you for coming out and for all your support!
Hannah Hooper's Oblivion was a huge success and it wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for everyone who attended! If you missed the opening, or need a second chance to take in all the great art, the show will be up thru July 20th, 2019 at Subliminal Projects.
1331 W. Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90026
Tuesday: Appointment Only
Wednesday-Saturday: 12pm - 6pm
A portal into Hooper’s subconscious, Oblivion exhibits intuitive pieces that reveal her emotions and raw instincts as they playfully rise to the surface. Floating bodies, crowded spaces and empty moments draw on Hooper’s personal experiences of being both in the limelight and being isolated. Her work also explores the nuances in her relationships to the post-modern expectations of youth against the backdrop of motherhood. Her practice aims to explore the spaces between the material world and the spiritual world, creating a vocabulary of symbolism all of her own.
“Art to me is about understanding your subconscious, and letting it heal, it’s primal, like childbirth.”– Hannah Hooper
“Hannah’s work takes a solitary dive that, at once, betrays the pull of gravity and also distorts the vision. It is a dive worth making.”– Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio)
The exhibition features a series of delicate line-drawings and large-scale paintings on canvas, along with sketches and renderings that are used as visual notes in color and composition, in preparation for her finished works.
In conjunction with the opening, an edition of zines, as well as 100 silkscreen prints individually hand-embellished by Hooper, were released and available to Oblivion attendees.
