Statement

HANNAH DE CORTE’S WORKS RENDER THE TEXTILE OF THE TRADITIONAL PAINTER’S SUPPORT – THAT OF THE LINEN AND THE COTTON CANVAS – VISIBLE. FAR AWAY THE VIEWER SEES THE COLORS AS A PAINTERLY STAIN. CLOSE-UP, THE VIEWER SEES THAT IT IS ACTUALLY A DRAWING OF SMALL DOTS ON THE SURFACING THREADS OF THE CLOTH WHICH FOLLOWS AND HIGHLIGHTS THE WEAVE OF THE CANVAS. THE WEAVE HAS A FAMILIAR QUALITY AS TEXTILE MATERIALS SURROUND US IN DAILY LIFE.
