Bubblegum Landscapes Exhibition by Frances Hahn
Summer exhibition recalls whimsical memories from childhood: supported by women in the community to help promote female artists
June 27 –September 15, 2019
Frances Hahn doesn’t attempt to paint a clear representation of a given landscape but takes from both reality and her best wondering about the place. She assembles these much like a puzzle into a simplified interpretation of beauty. While her visual work is either figurative or abstract landscape, the common subject is imagined memory. Future, past and fantasy have equal weight. In this vision, figures are simplified or distorted in order to emphasize gesture as if in a memory.
Frances Hahn is perhaps best known for her figurative collection of work featuring people blowing large bubbles out of bubblegum. Recently Frances has been exploring abstract landscape and this exhibition primarily celebrates her new work. “All my dreams fall and form a bridge of memory where I can get back.” – Frances Hahn.
Special thank you to the women in our community who attended the BLACK DRESS EVENT this past winter for their generous donation to help present this exhibition and support local female artists.
