engAGEing through ARTing | with Nora Hanasy
Watch with us on Sunday afternoon when we release our next engAGEing through ARTing film and podcast.
Join assemblage artist Nora Hanasy in her art studio for a unique insight into her world of found object art. She will share her studio practice with you including her creative processes, inspirations and techniques. You will get a sneak-peek at some of her works in progress and take you on a journey shedding light on the real day-to-day process of the artist, the time, hard work and persistence it takes to be a maker. For her, the studio is her sacred space, happy place, a quiet place for contemplation and concentration. It is where magic happens. It’s where new concepts come to light, at times happy dances are danced and hours fly by without notice.

About the Artist
Nora Hanasy was born in Budapest, Hungary. She came to Australia with her family at the age of 10 in 1984. With a love for art from a very early age, she decided to share her passion through inspiring others and completed a Bachelor of Education degree majoring in Visual Arts.
She has been an art educator for 19 years and currently works part time as an art teacher and an artist in residence at Rockhampton Girls Grammar School. This opportunity has provided her with more time to develop her own art practice which evolved into a passion for assemblage and found object sculpture. As an artist, she uses a wide range of techniques and mediums including painting, photography and printmaking, often incorporating these skills in her work. Materials used are pieces of everyday life, including discarded pieces of wood, broken objects and rusty bits of metal often in the condition in which they are found. Her style of work is intuitive, each piece taking inspiration from the material with which she has chosen to work with or found on a particular day.
Nora Hanasy is part of the Capricornia Printmakers Inc, exhibits regularly in a variety of exhibitions and public events and her work is held in both private and public collections.
