Hannah Richman studied painting at Brandeis University and now lives and paints in Somerville, Massachusetts.
Hannah Richman is drawn to the confluence of urban landscape and geometry. Through her oil paintings, she explores the way in which utilitarian buildings are constructed by humans, worn down over time and finally illuminated by nature in a moment captured in her paintings. Her work is purposefully devoid of almost all organic matter or human representation—forcing the viewer to consider a building as a visual object. Hannah's fascination with urban landscape comes in part from her roots in rural Kittanning, Pennsylvania, a formerly industrial town now generally abandoned and in a state of decay.
