“‘New Deity’ is a riff on ‘I Scream’ – exploring notions of the construction and formation of identity. I adapted the hair piece or ‘unicorn horn’ into a sort of radar – transmitting signals out.” Hannah Bays, Artist
Contemplating ‘desire’ as the crux of the creative process, Bays is interested in human drives and the construction of meaning in our lives. The artist’s palette is reminiscent of the pastel hues of 1950s consumer lust, where colour is applied to seduce and manipulate the spectator.
Bays has work in the Jerwood, Hiscox and Soho House collections, was awarded a Jerwood Purchase prize in 2014 and the Agnes Ethel Mackay travel award in 2015.
