Hannah Tilson has emerged from a strong creative lineage, confidently creating her own visual language and exhibiting for several years. Inspired by the stage, fashion and pattern, Tilson builds up layers of painting and drawing. She has recently been painting on panes of glass, creating open spaces between the glass and background painting, concealing and revealing parts of the image, so the challenge to work with a Perspex cube was a familiar one.
