Hanna & Foulkes is the collaborative effort of NY/LA-based artists Shawn Hanna and Carly Foulkes. Upon meeting in 2013, the pair found in each other a partner, collaborator, and a muse. They have since maintained an atmosphere of prolific innovation, and a body of work that continues to grow in its distinction and quality. The duo’s process is relaxed, making room for the quirky, whimsical, and candid to emerge. This open approach results in art that is remarkably honest and introspective. And while play is a core component of their technique, the two are earnest in their endeavor to craft an end result that is simple and refined.
This editorial they submitted to us here at NAKID is a brief study in the zen art of flower arrangement, without the sensorial distraction of censorship. Who needs clothing when you have Petunia? But who is Petunia? SHE certainly isn’t.
