“... I go my way, and my left foot says ‘Glory’, and my right foot says ‘Amen’...” Annie Dillard from A Pilgrim at Tinker Creek Lynn Hanson’s work stems from a rapt attention and visceral connection to the natural world: from a childhood stalking garter snakes at Whiskey Ditch in rural Minnesota to a daily ritual of exploring beaches and canyons along the California coast. Hanson’s studio, a long time in the wild garden of her Venice cottage, is now a WW II quonset hut in Ventura along the railroad tracks, just above the Pacific Ocean. Amidst her cache of skulls, crow’s nests, black widows in mason jars, mermaid’s purses, and other finds, she transcribes her field notes. The work carries an undercurrent of longing: drawings of native wildlife on vintage maps, paintings: the gray sea, heaps of rope, and shelters of wrack and bramble, in addition, pinhole and chlorophyll photography from the wanderings. Exhibitions include: Santa Monica Museum of Art, Long Beach Museum of Art, Lora Schlesinger Gallery, LA, Samuel Freeman Gallery, LA, Jack Rutberg Gallery, LA, PYO Gallery, LA and Seoul Collections include: Ed Ruscha, LA, Alison Saar LA, James Mangold and Cathy Konrad, LA, Laurel and Paul Britton, NYC, Steve Jacobson, NYC, Tim Blanks, London, Isabelle Bscher (Galerie Gmurzynska), Zurich, San Francisco 49ers A donation will be made to California Wildlife Center, Heal the Bay, or Santa Barbara Channelkeeper by the artist from any sale.
