About the Artist

Hannah Chertock is a multimedia artist exploring concepts of pain, bodies and medical technology. She graduated Virginia Commonwealth University School of Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Certificate of Product Innovation in 2016. She curated the Senior Photography Exhibition The Fox Behind Our House, May 2016. Her work has been featured at Adah Rose Gallery in Kensington, Maryland, The Anderson Gallery in Richmond, Virginia and literary arts journals such as Medical Literary Messenger and The Tulane Review. Her art aims to heighten body awareness by making viewers think about how they experience senses and movement. She manages an Etsy shop where she sells body inspired, intricately layered paper creations including tunnel books and metallic renditions of organs. Metallic papers represent technologies often involved in surgeries like joint and organ replacement. Her artwork strives to create a sense of awareness and appreciation of our bodies through the experience of art.
