Hannah Stahl, from Providence, RI, is an oil painter living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Stahl’s figurative paintings employ a stripped-down Old Master’s technique — revealing a world, not unlike our own — somewhere between the familiar and uncanny.  Her work has been written about in The Huffington Post, Art New England and The Tennessean, among other publications in the U.S. and abroad. In 2014 she was granted a residency at The Leipzig International Art Program in Germany, after previously attending a residency at Chautauqua Institution in 2012. Stahl received her MFA from the New York Academy of Art in 2015 where she now is adjunct professor for the Summer Undergraduate Residency Program. Stahl’s work has been exhibited and collected both nationally and internationally and is currently represented by Atelier Newport, in Newport, RI.
