About the Artwork
An edition of three, ‘Simple pleasures like eating and drinking are the most pleasurable’ is made up of three elements, a glass mug, vegetable dyed napkin and a herbal teabag made with magical intent.
Hannah Lees’ work investigates ideas of cycles, constancy and mortality; the sense that things come to an end and the potential for new beginnings. This constancy, be it in religion, science, history or in organic matter, is visible in her practice through her attempts to make sense of and recognise traces of life.
