Lannie Hart

Sleepy Hollow


My sculpture and paintings focus on the perception of women in contemporary society, as well as their historical and mythological portrayal. Based on the female figure, my practice is rooted in the mastery of various techniques, includin welding, assemblage, and wood carving, with a strong emphasis on conceptual content. . My most recent work investigates the objectification of women— how far we’ve come, and how far we have to go. Exploring female sexuality and empowerment, earlier repre-sentational sculptural work is informed by Renaissance art, Surrealism, and mythology, and embraces a variety of media including cast bronze and resin.

Whether evocative of nature, steeped in religion, or cloaked in other cultural references, the subjects of my work are often simultaneously beautiful and fractured, vulnerable yet powerful In 2012 she won first purchase prise a t the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center in Brooklyn, NY. The piece called What was She Thinking when She Walked Down the Isle, was acquired by the Yuko Nii Foundation's Permanent Collection.
