Hannah Batty?s works on paper critique familiar perceptions of drawing in methodical and patterned images that deny the objectivity anticipated in such work. Instead she creates organic and complex relationships and conversations between form, line and space. Arts commentator Sally Blundell has said: ?Batty?s evocative cartographic grids, skewed and warped? signify not only the hand of the artist but also the flexed lines of architectural forms taking shape on, and emerging out of, the paper.? Batty graduated from University of Canterbury 2013 and was a finalist in the national drawing award the Parkin Prize in 2014 and 2015.
