20x20" / Watercolor & Ink on paper
The heart of darkness exists within the light. Black Dawn, Dawn After Dawn Tepid Neon, Frozen Clarity. This contrast, and the ever present existence of the two is constant. Macabre Elegance. Darkness Falls Forever... Since The Beginning.
Los Angeles-based illustrator Hannah Stouffer finds a great deal of comfort in imagery- it's an admiration that is often times overwhelming. With an infatuation for icons and images that reflect and categorize historical eras, genres and subcultures, her work is an opulent, elegant and beautifully intricate mixture of illustration and design. Her densely-packed compositions consciously recall classical elements from our past and combine them with our modern attractions, creating cohesive yet opposing array's of imagery and embellishment. She focuses on the contrasts between periods in time, subcultures and social trends - and merges them together with a high regard for traditional decoration.
If you missed it, we posted a great interview with Hannah not long ago. Check it out here. It's a great read and she has SO much going on. Truly inspiring.
