Hannah Israel draws beauty out of tangible and intangible materials, as a poetic gesture that reflects the fragility of the world. Without a specific reference point, She investigates line, volume, texture, shape, and form that imbues a sense of intuition and informs a deep intellectual curiosity. Language, spatial relationship, and scale are also central concern in her work.
Israel is interested in using information as a form of abstraction. The nature of her work maps the relationships of our existence by illustrating how fragile time can be and how predictable our experiences can be based on the temperament of the world around us. Influenced by process art, she creates art that resemble subsets of sorting, gathering, tearing, cutting, and patterning.
