About The Artwork

Year: 2022 Style: illustration Description: Tantalus, in Greek mythology, was punished for the crime of filicide by being forced to stand in a pool of water that would lower so he couldn't drink it, under a tree with fruit that moved out of his reach. The term "Tantalean punishment" refers to having good things, but being unable to enjoy them. This image depicts the abstracted water reflecting the trees above, but always lowering before it can be drunk. Nowadays, young people thirst for a sense of direction and stability, but being online often exposes us to discord and anger, which leaves their souls parched. Need Help? Contact sales@revart.co

The Wonderland in the Sky

Every child knows how to trace the outlines on the moon. Those ancient craters and old lava tubes are never just dark stretches, but the silhouettes of humans, rabbits, and the characters we read about in fairy tales. Even as adults, we love looking at the sky and thinking back to the wonderland of the old days, to stories and fables that spark our imaginations. Artist Hannah England brings this imaginary world to life in her artwork. While drawing in her early childhood, Hannah found her biggest inspiration in fairy tales and sci-fi stories. Rather than expressing her own stories in words, Hannah preferred drawing them out. She eventually found the ultimate wonder world in the expanse of space where the whimsical and mysterious can be born. In her abstract artwork series, Spacescapes, Hannah creates different colorful asteroid-like shapes with hollows and nooks made from vivid color combinations and unexpected contrasts. The details invite viewers to figure out where those asteroids might be from, and even what kinds of stories might be hidden beyond them. So don't be surprised if you find shadows of your own imagination or your real life. Just by looking at Hannah’s work, you are invited into the wonderland with her. Perhaps we are no longer the child looking up at the worlds far away, but we can still experience the whimsy of imagination and wonder no matter our age.
