The work of Hannah Secord Wade has focused on landscape for the past nine years, exploring themes of removal and fear, and a lack of control over her surroundings. She works on a project-by-project basis, with each series addressing a specific concern.
Her current series, Everything All Together, is a gathering of landscape and debris into large mounds, which function as both hoards and refuse piles.
As the series progresses, the piles are continually washed away and then rebuilt. The works deal with the tension of wanting to contain and guard pieces of my environment, and conversely, to throw them all away.
