PAINTINGS | HANNAH WOOLL
CCA AT THE LOWRY HOTEL
Hannah Wooll's work has always been concerned with imagery that is slightly off kilter, exaggerated or fabricated. The portraits of women who at first glance are beautiful and uncomplicated then reveal themselves to be anything but, subverted from the magazine pages and old master paintings from which their heritage derives; laying sloth like in dead winter trees which belong in Technicolor film sets, or starkly lit in deliberately contrived and manufactured environments which are oddly dreamlike.
Hannah Wooll studied at Norwich School Of Art (1995-96), Manchester Metropolitan University (1997-2000) where she gained a 1st Class Degree in Fine Art, Painting; and The Royal Academy Schools (2000-03) where she received the May Cristea Award for Fine Art for her final show.
