Venue, Timing and Cost
Hannah Ferreira-Allen was born in Trinidad and moved to the UK as a child. Her painted work investigates her relationship to the landscape of Trinidad, occupying the interstice between insider and outsider. Although the colours in her work seduce the viewer, the lush surroundings are dense and impenetrable. Hannah Ferreira-Allen hones the materiality of paint to imbue a mood that echoes not only the complexity of her cultural identity but also something of the identity of Trinidad; considering the contrasts of a naturally abundant tropical paradise against the colonial history of the Caribbean island. Hannah Ferreira-Allen gained a Master of Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford University, in 2019 and a Bachelor of Arts at Lancaster University in 2017. She lives and works in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
