Hanna Washburn creates fleshy curves and bulges out of found fabrics and wood in her soft sculptures. Blending household textiles and clothing into furniture, she creates works that bridge the whimsical and the anatomical. This work stands alone via the legs of a doll chair from which a soft and bulging mass appears to grow.
Born in Boston, MA / Works in Hudson Valley, NY
Hanna Washburn’s soft sculptures sag and bulge in shapes that reference human anatomy. Their plush forms grow almost organically from clothing, furniture, and found objects. Hanna’s work is focused on associations; the materials she uses come from objects with previous stories told in fabrics that come from domestic interiors (upholstery, gingham table cloths, curtains) and the sculptures she creates blend the feminine, grotesque, maternal, modest, and sexual.
