Piece description from the artist
Hana Shoup's paintings show a struggle between duality. In the series titled "Remaking the Goddess," this struggle is expressed with two figures fighting and merging with one another and their environment. The action is elevated over the identity of the figures. They are contorted into uncomfortable poses, stripped of limbs, altered by outside pressures, and tangled up in each other. These physical distortions convey psychological anxiety resulting from competing internal and external forces. Pinks, purples, and reds are used for sentimental connotations of femininity and for visceral quality. The physicality of the painting is achieved by using sand, sawdust, paint and charcoal on the paper, going back to forth between spontaneous movements and careful balance of shapes, colors, and textures. While the figures begin to reveal themselves through this process, the survival of impulsive and disjointed elements is vital to the work, as the actual processes of painting and drawing are evidence of struggle between the artist's strengths and weaknesses.
