Born in 1989 in Rhode Island, Hannah Stahl’s artistic pursuit developed during her undergraduate career at Vanderbilt University. Her study culminated with the acceptance of the Hamblet Award that allowed her to travel Europe for two months and produce a body of work based on her experience. Alongside museum exhibitions of her greatest classical inspirations, Caravaggio and Rembrandt, Stahl also visited three concentration camps in Poland – one of which some of her ancestors perished at.
She had her first solo show in 2014 that comprised of a series of ten portraits of female holocaust victims. During her last semester of graduate school at The New York Academy of Art (2015), Stahl made the transition from telling other’s stories, to telling her own. She likes to build paintings, using symbols, to create a different world – one in which she searches for the uncanny.
Besides her solo show at Vanderbilt University’s gallery, she has participated in group shows at Flowers Gallery, Agora Gallery, and at Sotheby’s in NYC, as well as in two art fairs in 2016: “Art New York,” and “Art Southampton,” both of which are presented by Art Miami. She also has a partnership with Atelier Newport, a contemporary art gallery in Newport, RI. Stahl currently works in her studio in Brooklyn, NY.
