Hannah Tan is a visual artist who often begins her investigation through processes of material transference and thinking by employing surfaces as receptor sites. Her practice involves expanding ideas of abstraction through hand-based works like drawing, printing and painting to looking at technological imaging like ultrasound that transforms physical objects into images. She is intrigued by how images processed to mere traces augment our seeing. Her works look at the notion of perception, issues of visibility and invisibility and explore the relationships between nature, human, science and technology.
Hannah has been doing independent study into the materiality of paint pigments before pursuing her MA Fine Arts. She was selected for in the Tropical Lab 10, an exchange program with art students from overseas art institutions last year. Her works were exhibited at the experimental arts space 72-13, Space Cottonseed at Gillman Barracks, and Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore.
