Hannah Ranger   –   Visual Artist


Hannah Ranger is a visual artist living and practicing in Farrellton, Québec. Her interest

in art developed from being exposed, early in life, to a variety of artistic forms, at home,

at school, and in the community. The creation of artwork persisted, along side the study

of anthropology in university, and a passion for learning about the cultural history and

practices of societies around the world and at home. Over time, an attraction to fibre art

developed as it is such a primary medium and a big part of the foundation of culture

around the world. Textile and fibre art is not only a medium through which societies

were able to develop necessities such as clothing, carrying mechanisms,even housing

and other technologies, it was, and is, a form of expression and identification from

within the culture. Having experimented with different forms of textile art, felt making

was the discovery that revolutionized Hannah’s artistic expression and eventually

launched a full time artistic practice. Felt making allows the creative impulse to emerge

in a spontaneous and evolving way, yielding sculptural work that provokes our senses

with the visceral experience brought on by the animal and plant fibres used. The

medium links the maker and observer to our primal past. The felting process is the oldest

and most rudimentary form of textile making known to human kind (apart from the use

of animal hide), and predates weaving. It is a medium that connects us to our humanity,

our cultural development and our relationship to our environment. That is what is most

of interest to this artist.
