jd Hansen’s art explores the juxtaposition of vulnerability and strength through use of the human and animal form. Her work excavates the intricacies of human psychology, non-verbal communication, and theories of quantum physics through elongated figures, subtle use of body language, and most recently, the addition of welded copper handwriting to her work. Hansen earned a BFA from the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, CA, in 1994, and did Bronze found and metal-working studies from 2001-2003.
