Hannah Cole: Caring for Surfaces
November 6 – December 18, 2015
755 Commonwealth Avenue, 2nd floor
Opening Reception – Friday, November 6, 6-7:30pm
Hannah Cole (CFA ’05) creates meticulously detailed paintings that take as their subject the everyday objects in the artist’s immediate surroundings. Recently, Cole has turned her attention to the industrial fragments and urban fixtures of her former Brooklyn neighborhood and Manhattan. Ubiquitous industrial details, such as manhole covers, water main caps, and architectural grates are transformed by Cole’s fastidious, painterly realism. Through careful observation, Cole’s work reflects a keen sense of the visual geometry and lyricism of the urban quotidian.
