Sculptures and Installations by Hanna Vogel
MAR 1–APR 5, 2021 (Virtual Exhibition) 

The Chesapeake Gallery is excited to virtually exhibit the immersive artworks by Philadelphia-based artist and educator, Hanna Vogel. Vogel received a BFA from the California College of the Arts and an MFA from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. In her work, she uses craft-based materials and techniques in non-traditional ways to make sculptures and installations that explore aspects of entropy in the natural world.

 

“I create imaginary landscapes and growths to investigate the effects of entropy on our environments.”

I transform the commonplace materials of porcelain, paper, and wire into unfamiliar forms and textures that evoke growth, decay, and the tenuousness of our surroundings. By referencing craft traditions and natural processes of dissolution, my work addresses aspects of existence on the edge of potential destruction.
