In Orebro OpenART 2011, Hanna Beling participated with Small pigs / Large pigs. Now she´s having her first solo exhibition in Örebro Konsthall. - Sculpture is my primary means of expression, says Hanna Beling on its website. I work figurative and I´m inspired by by for instance Renaissance portraiture. I dress up my sculptures and adds another dimension to the term by creating atmosphere around the main object with various props, clothing and other items. The materials I make sculptures in the wax, plastic, silicone bronze. For some time I have worked with to experiment with scales and go up and down in size. I have particularly tried to enlarge significantly, to see how the expression changes depending on whether the sculpture size under powered or over powered. Maybe I have a fascination for the untested, the incipient. My series of animals is a sample of a curiosity in me for the original, primitive mammals. "
Some famous public works by Hanna Beling is for example the head of Marie-Louise Ekman's sculpture Astrid Lindgren in Vimmerby townsquare. Likewise, Beling has sculpted the face to Ekman´s sculpture Margareta Krook, that stands in front of the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm.
