DESCRIPTION

 

Lynn Hanson's work emanates from her constant attention and visceral connection to the natural world. Daily pilgrimages to the ocean, haunting the piers, and tent camping along the California coast provided fodder for "plow the deep", Hanson's  large scale field notes. The "pull of the sea" works document swimmersand surfers in eight foot drawings and paintings. The "void & brine‟ paintings are spare recordings of sea and sky. Vintage pull down maps host large scale drawings of the giant pacific octopus. Other work includes "portraits" of an oil drum entitled "bungholes", and a pelican shrouded in kelp.
