Hanna Lena Hase


The oil paintings of the Hamburg based artist Hanna Lena Hase reveal a dreamy play of contrasts: Art and nature, real and fantastic, graphic and kitsch meet, melt together or let tensions arise. Pasty brushstrokes hit on transparent multilayered compositions. The human being who is alienated from nature takes center stage, searching his true identity. He strikes animal poses, dissolves in pattern worlds, hides behind masks and loses himself in dreams. Also, within her mural paintings the artist plays with different styles combining acrylic paint, spray paint and house paint.
