Created specifically for For Freedoms, Green pastures and still waters, within your purview, is a silkscreen print featuring a woman sitting at her kitchen table framed by the window behind her displaying a scene of expansive land that is both tranquil and vast. A subtle light shines on her face, coming from the direction of her gaze. In addition to being inspired by color relationships, the artist has recently been interested in thought forms and their nature, particularly those thought forms employed to transcend oppression. Many of her paintings depict an inner journey, a character’s travels through space or time to find new doors, pathways, or perspectives.

Hana Ward (b. 1989, Los Angeles, CA) makes paintings and ceramic works that explore themes of identity, introspection, and transformation. Appearing both ethereal and visceral, Ward weave together moods, motives and narratives to depict Black and Brown feminine figures who reflect and dream, creating their sovereign worlds from the inside out. These multitudinous visions of unfolding self-actualizations are sometimes sheltered in the solitude of domestic space and other times liberated into landscapes. Influenced by anticolonial histories, spiritual texts, and cycles of the natural world, as well as the canon of art history, Ward’s work excavates the inner dimension to discover a world where one’s sovereignty is in the here and now. Ward received a BA from Brown University in 2011 and currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Ward has exhibited at OCHI, Los Angeles, CA; Mrs. Gallery, Maspeth, Queens; Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA, among others, and her work has been featured in publications including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Financial Times, and Artforum, among others. .  

Hana Ward was awarded the For Freedoms x Converse Hear Her Hear Mural Commission in 2020, an ongoing initiative that helps propel more Black femme artists into spotlights, onto stages and at the heads of tables to make a positive impact on the communities we share. The artist states “I deeply believe in the creative power of imagination and affirmation, and using this creative power to imagine worlds and ways of being into reality. I love that For Freedoms is interested in collective expansion in this way, and in platforming artists and artwork that imagine what could be. “

This print is part of a suite of limited edition prints by a diverse group of womxn-identifying artists commissioned on the occasion of Untitled Art Miami Beach 2023  in order to amplify the necessity and power of creativity in shaping inclusive civic discourse. These prints will benefit the artists and For Freedoms’ upcoming initiatives.
