Hanna Pettyjohn’s new solo exhibition enriches a narrative developed in prior shows. Blending familiar settings and objects, such as a tide of still life textiles below self-portraits in profile amid landscapes of waterless soil, themes expand through the use of new techniques. The works are composed in a manner of a collage, with disparate elements stacked upon each other with spatial indifference. Pettyjohn extracts snippets of images and banks them in a single digital file, where they have been accumulated, concealed, layered, obscured and rearranged in her paintings.
