Hannah Saxby draws inspiration from the industrial landscape and has a personal fixation with metal lattice shapes and forms such as pylons, cranes, and scaffolding. Their symmetrical interlocking patterns have enhanced this fascination continually inputting on the work. These repeated geometric shapes have informed this practice, which relates to Minimalism.
With an intention to overwhelm the viewer, the work is made to be viewed from all angles and to tower over the onlooker. Juxtaposition is central to the practice, using a simple minimal shape, but repeating this, thus making it more complex. It’s simplicity leads to its complexity.
