The Guest Curator: Hannah Weiland

We're excited to introduce our latest Guest Curator, Hannah Weiland, founder of British fashion brand Shrimps.

With a background in History of Art and Surface Textile Design, Hannah takes her inspiration for her label from the witticisms and playful compositions in modern art.

Read below to find out Hannah’s design motto, learn about her personal art collection, and discover her curation of favourite Partnership Editions artworks.

QUICKFIRE

Favourite artwork of all time? It is actually impossible to choose just one, a few of my very favourites are: Botticelli - Primavera, Paula Rego’s Nursery Rhyme Series. Magritte - The Empire of Light, Otto Dix - Nelly with Toy, Van Gogh - Still Life with Pink Roses, Henry Darger - The Vivian Girls, Mary Fedden- ‘Pot of Shells’ 1971...

Where do you go for inspiration? I go antique shopping and to art galleries, I collect art books and I travel (but not as much as I like anymore having 2 young children!)

A design motto to live by? "Always trust your gut instinct"

How would you describe your personal art collection? It is very considered, I never jump into an art purchase, I always think about it for a long time, I make sure it is a piece that I really, really love. A lot of the pieces I own hold a special meaning, there are pieces that have been passed down from my parents that I have known my whole life, pieces that remind me of my childhood. And then there are pieces that I have saved up for and really coveted.

Can’t live without? My art books
