Hannah Quinlivan, black and white artist portrait

Hannah Quinlivan’s practice has been recognised for its skilful exploration of ideas around human movement, emotional cognition and time’s flowing passage. Through various methods of exploring line and form – via traditional drawing techniques and weaving methodologies using wire, adhesive tape or LED lighting – Hannah challenges the way we expect line to operate and be presented. Her work is experiential not only in its physicality but also through a range of conceptual connections, using repetition, ephemerality and the interplay of light and shadow to open up discussions around pressing contemporary topics. Hannah’s constantly evolving practice gives her work an organic, living quality that creates an immersive experience for the viewer.

Hannah graduated from the Australian National University in Canberra with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2013. has participated in many international solo and group exhibitions including the MINIARTEXTIL survey of contemporary textile art in Como, Italy (2019) and Paris, France (2020). She has also exhibited in New York, Hong Kong, Berlin, Cambridge, Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia.

In Australia she has held multiple solo exhibitions at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra, as well as exhibiting at the Canberra Museum and Art Gallery, and Town Hall Gallery and Deakin University in Melbourne.
