Poem 88 is pleased to present Hannah Tarr’s first solo exhibition. Tarr’s work straddles the worlds of provisional painting and contemporary abstraction. Exciting color relationships and seemingly spontaneous compositions energize the delicate and dreamlike works. In both painting and sculpture, Tarr evokes childhood activities and memories.
Tarr provides this statement about the work:
1. Angel of the Industrial Park
I spoke to an angel. He said, "Build a skin around your skin. Let the work cover your softness and carry you into the new world. This new body will keep you safe. It will walk you through the chaos and chronic illness on this dying planet. This augmentation is your escape hatch."
