Verlin received her BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2005. Hannah’s artwork all shares an aesthetic of belied simplicity. Shapes are limited to basic geometries of squares, circles, and triangles. The color palette is restrained to black and white with only the occasional burst of color in contrast. The materials are familiar, however, the residue of an intense process gives the art a scintillating and restless quality. In addition to gallery based art, she has created many site-specific and temporary public works throughout New England. In 2011 the Massachusetts Cultural Council awarded her a Fellowship in Sculpture/Installation and she received a Fellowship in Visual Art from Somerville Arts Council.
