Moon Dream presents two loved motifs in Hannah's repertoire, the mountain and the puddle - which could also be a lake - she never leaves a trace of scale so you can decide how grand or intimate this world is. In this beguiling painting, the mountain is there and not there, like a dream. The water below shines and glistens in the light, and the moon's reflection is suspended within the layers of oil glaze.
Hannah Luxton (b.1986, London, UK) investigates feelings and visions of the natural sublime. Her paintings engage with the Romantic tradition whilst equally reaching much further back in time, finding an emotional kinship with the implicit sense of the sublime perhaps traceable within prehistoric art. This narrative is further enhanced by animistic currents which hint towards a higher spiritual dimension. Her paintings meditate upon her recurring motifs of universally recognised natural forms, from mountains, horizons, craters and lakes, to storm clouds, stars and the moon.
