Meet Hannah

Hannah Gordun

Hannah-Clare de Gordun is an Irish Textile Artist, Painter & Printmaker. Connecting to her own heritage, she uses the art of textiles as a way of visualising and interrogating a language of belonging, loss and identity. On both sides of her family, her foremothers worked as seamstresses and lace makers. This plays a major role in exploring embodied knowledge in the making of the work. Alongside her fibre art, she also works in the mediums of paint and print to create repeat patterns which are printed onto textiles. She is currently exploring the production of innovative sustainable materials and will be launching her eponymous home textile line later this year.

Art by Hannah

Hannah Gordon Red Anemones

In a world of minimalist design her style is definitely MAXIMALIST. She loves to layer pattern, texture & lots of colour. More is definitely more. Her work generally starts with a gouache painting which, once completed, she extracts certain elements to create a repeat pattern which is then screen printed or digitally printed onto textile. She is influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement of the mid-19th century, and the exploration of the decorative arts in a fine art context.
