Hannah Rickards

To enable me to fix my attention on any one of these symbols I was to imagine that I was looking at the colours as I might see them on a moving picture screen.

Hannah Rickards’ meticulously researched and executed works explore the elusive landscape of perception, language and translation. Her attention is particularly drawn to natural phenomena such as thunder, mirage and the aurora borealis. She closely examines these occurrences - and how we experience them - through moving image, sound and installation works.
 
This absorbing exhibition presents an artist whose work is resolutely and appropriately difficult to categorise. It brings together Rickards’ most recognised pieces alongside a new work exhibited here for the first time, inviting us to encounter and enjoy the complexity, limitations and intense beauty of language.
