Hannah Fitz creates sculpture works, representing familiar objects, departicularized and dead pan. Awkwardly rendered as still chunks of physicality uncomfortable in their material form, they are more an image than object. Fitz creates series or sets of sculptures, with repeated and varied forms that catch on a glitch in vision or a gap in knowledge.
