Hannah Lewis is a visual artist, vintage clothing seller, and treasure hunter born and raised in southwest Florida. Organizing her embarrassingly large troll doll collection, restoring old clothing, and searching for bizarre objects to include in her next artwork are just a few of her favorite pastimes.

Lewis’s sculptural works explore how branding and media influence the ways in which we identify ourselves and behave. She is especially interested in the (oftentimes toxic) relationship between marginalized consumers and objects of consumption. Forced to grapple with a socio-political climate that isn’t always hospitable for fat women of color, Lewis imagines a future where her differences are both recognized and celebrated.

During her residency at Elsewhere, Lewis created Dress-Up.
