The vivid watercolor paintings of Moira Hahn have caught our attention recently. The bold colors and patterns endow the artworks with vibrant, pulsating energy. Despite their otherworldly and fantastical veneer, the intense compositions seem to have deep roots in the earthly plane. Animals figure predominantly in many of the pieces, most likely as a totemic connection representing humankind's psyche.

Some of Moira's paintings are influenced by eastern techniques and themes, Ukiyo-e Japanese woodcut styles for example are "remixed". The resulting works are beautiful, intriguing, and saturated with visual narrative and symbolism.
We'll be featuring more about Moira Hahn and her artwork, as well as her upcoming show at Roq La Rue Gallery later this year.
