As a person who identifies as an outlier, my perspective is outside the boundaries of the norm. My work has been informed by this, my abilities, and the relationship of the body to the external world.
After spending most of the pandemic in the lush, green forests, listening to the birds sing while hunting moss, lichen, & mycelium, I truly believe that the answer we're looking for lies beneath our feet and under the soil in the complex system of the natural world. This regenerative spirit inspires my work & convinces me that this is our hope for the future.
My artwork continues to evolve to include the body's relationship with the natural world, while I continue to advocate for patient autonomy in the medical world, as it relates to female patients, patients with disabilities, and patients from historically marginalized communities. My craftwork of my Polyphonic Art tiles & assemblages continue to keep me busy building on that solid utilitarian nature as I continue to build my knowledge of materials and techniques. Growing up with learning disabilities has created an insatiable desire in me to learn everything that I possibly can.
Lu Hanna identifies as a queer, transmedia artist with many abilities whose work is process-based in myriad of mediums driven by concept. Critical thinking and research inform the method, while the nature of the material is studied and the project, with my practice, continues to evolve as I pursue the answers to the questions I ask.
Just as in the natural world adaptation is paramount to our own species’ survival. And the way in which we choose to adapt is what will carry us forward. And so I continue to look to the natural world to inspire beauty & wonder in my art, with persistence in asking the pertinent questions-LH
