HANNAH GOFF is a native North Carolinian who recently relocated back to the state from Brooklyn, NY. With a background in textile and fashion design, her practice is comprised of reclaimed and recycled fabrics which are sewn, quilted, painted, and collaged into abstract sill life compositions. These “paintings” are a meditation on the nature of place and how interior environments shape our well-being and quality of life. Hannah can trace her roots in North Carolina back to one of the state’s first Quaker settlements in Alamance County and to the Chowanoke Indian Nation. Her most recent works incorporate influences from both society’s craft and textile traditions. She regards her work as an organic process of experimentation and discovery, lead by her materials on a journey to create an atmosphere of harmony and beauty.
Hannah Goff has previously taught at Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, PA and currently lives and works in Lexington, NC. Her work has been exhibited at the Textile Arts Center (Brooklyn, NY), The Flag Art Foundation, Spring Break Art Show (NYC), and Charleston Fashion Week
