Hannah Tilson is an artist from London, who recently graduated with a Bachelors in Painting from the Slade School of Fine Art. Inspired by toys and fashion, Tilson’s images often evoke feelings of times past and glory days. Tilson's work is a colourful range of mix-media, between weaving and painting, where she overloads the viewer with information through the clashing of patterns and forms. Layering is an important part of Tilson’s work, through painting on and within the glass frame, the works act almost like a theatrical set, concealing and revealing parts of the image and creating spaces between the glass and the background. The exploratory feel from her work derives from creative play and artistic discovery, resulting in work that unapologetically pops.
