Through her work, painter Hannah Nowlan employs gaping expanses of colour in attempt to create atmospheres of the vast Australian landscape and fields of consciousness that one can lose themselves within. "More recently, as the country recovers from bushfire and now endures a health crisis, I’ve been interested in metaphors that exist within slowing down and retiring to a state of retreat or hibernation. Intricate patterns found within a hermit shell, the shedding of a lizards skin or the burrowing underground has weaved through my paintings, connecting deeply with the current state of humanity."
