Connecting, responding and creating with the land through nature art
Hannah Hardy creates tender and dynamic land art which significantly take the form of transient nature art portraits created through found natural materials. Hannah simultaneously finds natural materials whilst out walking and connecting with the landscape. Thereupon co creating with nature through a wide range of natural materials, Hannah straightaway spontaneously responds to the land, elements and weather. These natural materials include drawing on water, drawing with light, co creating with ice, growing live moss graffiti, living plant sculptures, charcoal from ceremonial fires and natural materials found whilst connecting with the site.
Creativity as meditation through land art
Integral to Hannah’s creation process is her meditation practice as she explores connection within her internal and external landscape.
Hannah says about her work:
“From my nature art series Realising Permanence through impermanence. Spontaneously out in nature, found items, leaves, flowers, shells come together as a divine co creation. Awareness revealing itself. I feel that life happens through us, as we release limiting beliefs and realise our inherent connection with and as all that is, alignment, peace, compassion and joy effortlessly radiates through. I enjoy that the works take form, express as awareness then are taken back by the winds of change, transient faces realised as the unchanging. The nature art series is called ‘Realising permanence through impermanence’, when all is removed what remains..?”
The Realising permanence through impermanence land art series
Hannah’s land art meditation series Realising permanence through impermanence explores what is temporary and what is unchanging, as the natural materials take form as assemblage creations and are taken back by the winds of change.
Transient land art moments encapsulated and living nature artworks
Hannah creates nature art portrait commissions on request and these temporary creations exist as limited edition signed prints. Hannah is currently creating a unique book of her nature art creations and meditations.
