FrenemiesYou Me and Everyone, and Outsiders and Misfits are a new body of small table-top and wall sculptures created during the Lockdown of 2020, all of which extend Hatty's curiosity beyond formal and material appreciation to an interest in the power dynamics attached to personal experience. 


You Me and Everyone summons a world of playful characters, half-conjured narratives and gentle musings reduced to essences of materials, forms and sensations. Typical of Hatty's work, materials more usually associated with a domestic context are combined to create texturally appealing works. Bringing together brass, aluminium, synthetic fur and sticky tape to explore contradictory notions of reality and artificiality, the work proposes a playfully serious approach to the construction of identity.
