Hana Ward

Hana Ward makes paintings and ceramic sculptures that explore themes of identity, introspection and transformation. The artist is heavily influenced by post-colonial theory, histories and fiction—as well as the canon of white art history and its wide-reaching effects on minorities. Appearing both ethereal and altogether visceral, Ward’s Black feminine figures possess a compelling yet ambiguous presence—sometimes sheltered in the solitude of domestic space and other times liberated into landscapes.
