Hannah Dove

My work investigates the notion of beauty and time through the exploration of pressed flowers. My current work combines these flowers with hand-stitching and text. In my view, stitching is analogous to constructing new connections and mending old broken relationships. As a result, in my major work, the stitched words communicate complementary messages, which were selected from a collection of conversations. For me, the process of collecting and stitching or mending the flowers, suggests the importance of truth, and its attachment to beauty. This work invites the audience to sort through the flowers, reflect and contemplate on their appearance, and consider the messages.
