About

Hannah Battershell’s work is known for being small in scale, from miniature paintings to collages. The pieces often incorporate found objects; old tins house intricate dioramas, the holes of a button become ghostly eyes staring out of a tiny portrait.
 
Drawing inspiration from literature, her dreams, medieval paintings, Victorian children's book illustrations and many other sources, Hannah's playfully dark tone, blends surreality and melancholy tempered by gothic humour. A half-remembered quotation, a sentence in a book or an overheard anecdote, might also spark an idea for a piece. The viewer of the work is struck by the feeling of peering into a fantasy world.
