Hannah Wooll explores the domestic space, interior life and the value associated with related objects and artworks. Her most recent practice relies on junk-shop sourced found media; starkly-lit, contrived photographs lifted from the pages of outmoded craft manuals set against incongruous ink painted figures. She plays with scale, splicing and assembling, both referencing and deconstructing the original image. The effect is an off-kilter technicolour film-set, maximizing the potential of contrived images freed from their intended context.

Hannah’s women appear awkward yet untroubled by their unnatural surroundings, acknowledging the style and era of the books with which she works, as well as the individual women that have pored over these home craft books filled with arguably outdated feminine pursuits and domestic recreation. The dreamlike and static qualities of the work are due to Hannah taking advantage of the duplicity of unnatural lighting, allowing a two-dimensional feel, lending a lack of naturalism. We swiftly become caught up in these quietly absurd moments, the image paused; melodramatic fragments of still and uneasy tension.
