Hannah Ranger is a fibre artist from Farrellton, Quebec where she is a founding member and program director at Place des Artistes de Farrellton: paf-fas.org/hannah-ranger
Throughout her artistic career, she has experimented with a variety of mediums. In 2006 she discovered felt making, which she enjoys for its alchemical qualities. Her upcoming exhibition: “So Close, So Far” is a partnering with Espace Pierre-Debain, a public gallery in Gatineau, Québec. The show runs August 30 - October 15, 2017.
In this work for this exhibition, Hannah explores the impact of nature’s processes; the impact of human interaction with the environment and also celebrates the beauty of change, movement, regeneration and transformation. She does this by using felted panels and sculptures which interpret aerial views that reveal the patterns which emerge from natural phenomena and our movements within our geographical locations. These pieces look intimately, up close, and beneath the surfaces, at what we might find when we move into our environment to examine the details. This work follows subject matter she began investigating in her exhibit at the Trienniale Internationale Des Arts Textiles in 2016.
This year, Hannah was a recipient of a territorial partnership grant from Conseils des Arts et des Lettres du Québec for her partnership with Espace Pierre Debain in the production of her upcoming show.
