"Hawks Lust for Power" Ash Hane
Interesting dirty and apocalyptic atmosphere created by messy and organic overlay. The image of the hawks is very powerful in the context of the somewhat abstract and stark environment. Her work makes an interesting counterpart to fellow print grad student, Laura Corcoran's work. Both deal with the stark industrial landscape and different abstractions and symbolic aspects of birds. The palette is subdued and composed of grays, tans and soft greens, blues. Interpretable as either natural earth tones, or industrial concrete and chemical tones, the boundaries of the two worlds are blurred, strengthening Hane's allegories of the hawk.
