Hannah Haworth

According to the short portfolio statement included on the site of  Scottish-born, Brooklyn-based artist Hannah Haworth, she makes “lots of fantastically unnecessary bits and pieces.” This is, of course, the charm of her textile installations, which stem from Haworth’s love of “nature, stories and craft.” Indeed, her exhibitions often appear as though a gathering of stray animals have curiously entered the gallery space and proceeded to make themselves at home. I particularly like her use of texture and material and the manner in which she has taken what looks like reused clothing to make little woodlands creatures. There is definitely something quite magical and sweet about her artistic universe.
