Playing with space through the art of photography, American artist Hannah Whitaker explores a confluence of signs in her dynamic, pattern-driven works.
In her art, Whitaker tiles a series of photography exposures on top of each other to literally build a visual depth of the forms and objects in her work. This creates the illusion that different elements in each work floating or levitating between planes within a visually deep plane and provides the viewer with an entry point to explore these different fields. Interspersed within these fields are shapes that can be construed as either symbols or patterns, a hint of Whitaker’s play with the various visual languages that govern our daily lives.
Based in Brooklyn, New York, Whitaker completed her BA at Yale University and her MFA from the International Center of Photography at Bard College of New York. She has enjoyed the showcase of her work in an incredible variety of group and solo exhibitions. Some of her recent solo exhibitions include “The Use of Noise” at the Thierry Goldberg Gallery in New York (2012) and “Verbs” at the Galerie Christophe Gaillard in Paris (2016). She has also been active in the editorial and curatorial worlds, including her recent “We Are Not Things” showing curated for INVISIBLE-EXPORTS in New York.
