Hannalie works with the captured image. Altered, reimagined and reinterpreted. Using mainly vintage photographs sourced from flea markets and even from her own family archives. These are used as is, or blown up to a larger scale. Altered with tire inner tube inlays and hand-embroidered detailing drawn with thread. Hannalie’s work is populated by people, masks and sometimes floral arrangements.
What is shown and what is hidden become interdependent elements of visual storytelling, thus “a new fantasy emerges in a world clinging to the need to believe in the magic of innocent aspiration.”
