Inspired by my love for storytelling, and experience as a disabled lesbian, my work follows themes of isolation, memory, and fiction. To be seen is both a powerful and terrifying thing, in equal measure. Being apparent means an openness and vulnerability not everyone can afford to have. Through visual stories that span materials, I hope to convey my own hidden experiences, while giving space to allow the viewer to think of their own. Having been homeschooled for 12 years and a reserved person, I’ve grown accustomed to spending time in my own head. Because of this my work is quiet, simple, and contemplative with the color and artifice of an active imagination.

Hannah Pasedag was born in Rockville, MD but spent most of her young life in constant flux between states on the East Coast. She earned a BFA in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2019, and has since expanded her practice to painting, printmaking, and book arts. Her work has been exhibited locally and nationally, notably: Art Papers, Thomas Deans Fine Art, Printed Matter, MINT, and Besharat Gallery. Her work is owned by the Atlanta College of Art Library, and several private collections. A lover of knowledge, Pasedag is endlessly fascinated by stories, people, and the world around her. Above all else, she hopes you are staying safe and caring for the most vulnerable members of your community. She is currently based in the Atlanta metro area.
