Linda HanauerNew York, NY
Linda Hanauer works with collage, printmaking, handmade paper, and handmade books. Her collages incorporate worn textiles, old handwriting, botanicals, and rag papers to suggest the passage of time. Influenced by the work of women who made abstract art with textiles, she is drawn to traditional sewing materials and to the character inherent in worn or tattered things. In her recent series of collages, she cuts apart her monoprints, recomposes the pieces and stitches into them to form abstract compositions. As Chairperson of the Middle School Art Department at The Dalton School, Linda teaches studio art, papermaking, and bookbinding to Middle School students, as well as a High School Book Arts course. "I encourage a sense of discovery and playfulness with my students. Ideas flow back and forth between my teaching and my art making. Watching the students' engagement with the process feeds my desire to get to work. The teaching inspires me and comes back to me in full circle." Ms. Hanauer's work has been exhibited regionally.
