About The Artwork

Year: 2022 Style: pop art Description: "In the middle of nowhere, when you are wandering between wake and sleep, you may find a vending machine. Be careful what you buy, because there are secrets inside that no one was meant to find..." I am fascinated by Japanese vending machines. I never would have known about how different they were from American ones if it wasn't for the internet. You can buy coffee. You can buy flowers. You can buy bread in a can. This, along with coutless other cultural differences, is one reason that i'm grateful for the internet. It may be a rough place to be sometimes, but it can connect us with people and ideas from across the globe. This vending machine features some odd products, both from specific countries and from the world of my imagination. Do you recognize any of them? Need Help? Contact

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.
