Paper Wave: Hannah Tucker

Hannah Tucker uses photomontage and collage to conjure images from her imagination. She dismantles found images in order to build new ‘skins’ or ‘covers’ that fuse the natural and man-made, often critiquing our relationship with both. This type of mixed media art has its roots in the subversive German artists of the early twentieth century who used photomontage as a way to make images that channeled their anti-fascist beliefs. During the same period artists associated with cubism and surrealism created dream-like photomontages that played with perspective and the human form.

Hannah creates new images by camouflaging and disguising the originals; feathers morph into hair, a cityscape merges with oil tankers. Using found images to create statements about living systems, Hannah collects and designs images reflective of the natural world in conflict with the man-made environment.

Some of Hannah’s most recent work uses mixed media, continuing her experiments with montage but combining this with paint, paper and marks. Collage scraps she finds and ephemera she collects at markets are woven into her mixed media work.

About the artist
Hannah Tucker studied sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art and over the past 10 years has exhibited in the UK and Ireland. Since graduating she has moved from sculpture to print-making to photo-montage and mixed media. Eight years spent working at the Natural History Museum developed her interest in the natural world and our relationship with living systems. Hannah’s printmaking work was first exhibited in 2012 in a group exhibition at the Red Bull studios, London. She regularly exhibits at Brixton Urban Art and contributes to group shows at Artlink, all the time working on private commissions.
