Hannah Hoff

on Edgar Degas' The Little Fourteen Year-Old Dancer

"What always brought me to this piece was the dancer’s skirt, and how it’s made of real material and isn’t just put on with clay.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Hannah Hoff's work examines patterns in line, form, and color through paintings and collage. Influenced by Josef Albers and Mark Rothko, Hannah reconfigures the basic elements of design, giving them fresh life.
