Description

Spooky Action, 2015
Wool, polyamide, viscose, polyethylene, terephthalate, hand-spun California Variegated Mutant (Nashua), Redwood
38 1/2 x 47" OVERALL
Many of Hansen's works include vibrant abstract forms such as the AD&A Museum's Spooky Action which details a prominent lemon shaded sphere along the top. This mixed media hanging reflects the labour intensive process of hand knitted, wahsed and dyed wool which the artist spins himself eventually mounting onto a wooden stretcher. And although the construction of his work is often seen as improvised, its appearance is predetermined by computer algorithms potentially generating an infinite number of color combinations resulting in the artist being unaware of how the finished work will look until it is complete.
