Hannah Cole: Caring for Surfaces

November 6 – December 18, 2015

Sherman Gallery
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.
