Hannah Dennis

MA Fine Art

Hannah’s current practice is an exploration of death, decay, impermanence and permanence through the mediums of drawing and traditional black and white photography.

She is investigating the portrayal of the memory and loss in humanity in our society through images of decaying subjects as well as decaying photographs and allowing her own work to decay. This is being reflected on this through ideas of death, decay, permanence and impermanence and also loss through the chemical process of black and white photography in conflict with the memories recorded delicately as images. She is achieving this through her current exploration of decaying photos of past memories, using memories friends or family who are now deceased and the places and objects associated with them.

She has also been investigating Memento Mori a Latin phrase meaning ‘Remember you will die’ as an on going relating theme, which has been used as a catalyst for her work. Decaying images of family memories and events are being used to examine our fear of death.

Decay and permanence are taken literally and metaphorically, and reflected upon through process and sequences within her work, to become something that we all must eventually come to terms with.
