Hannah Kidd Heavy Petting

Hannah Studied Fine Arts at Otago from 1998 – 2001, majoring in sculpture.

She lives in Franz Josef with her husband and two boys and splits her time between there and a workshop in Methven.

 Sculptures are made from a steel rod framework and corrugated iron that has been flattened and cut to form a skin.

Themes in Hannah’s work revolve around global environmental issues, our changing domestic landscape, and the people and creatures that stereotype our surroundings. Often humour is used as a vehicle for discussion of more serious issues.

Inspiration comes from pretty much everywhere. TV, books, magazines, but mostly from people or situations experienced while travelling. ‘Really, it's an observation of the human condition. People that inspire me are those that have a driving passion, be it for collecting fine art or breeding giant chickens'.
