Rachel Hahn
Artist Statement
Rachel Hahn is an emerging minimalist artist based in Toronto, Ontario and a recent graduate of Western University's BFA program. She has developed a visual language and a material process that challenges the system of printmaking. Her recent large scale works, address our perceptions of the print technologies potential to incorporate other mediums, particularly painting and sculpture. The printings depict hard-edge abstraction with grid-like formalist qualities. Most often working with two colours and intersecting geometric forms, the flat planes achieve balance within the allover composition. The registration of the printmaker's stencil is the artist's gesture towards a deconstruction of that system and a new categorization of the printmaker's art.
