Q1. If you could go anywhere in time where would it be and why?
A1. Trannsylvania. Or that one castle where everything is made out of ice and crystal, and its always the middle of winter black as night- but only if I get to wear a polar bear, and my hair is really, really long… Remember that one scene from Willow when the giant fleshy vein monsters with no eyes are surrounding them on all sides while crossing that rock bridge thats like a million feet up and Val Kilmer comes in to sword them right through their disgusting heads?? Yeah me too. Shit. Anywhere but there… totally not there.
Q2. Do you have a phobia or irrational fear?
A2. cats, cat fur, furry cats and fur cats. gross.
Q3. Most exciting moment of your life thus far?
A3.The MOST exciting?? Thats impossible. Sometimes I feel like my day-to-day epitomizes the most epic adventures through the universe- filled with giant ice cream cones with so many sprinkles and I’m riding a mystical dolphin- and the air smells like lust and magic- and everything is cloaked in constellations and darkness… then I wake up and we’re naked in the forest- brunch is ready and my favorite song is playing so fucking loud.
Q4. Do you have a lucky charm?
A4. Keys, phone and wallet- check.
Q5. If your artwork was a cereal, which one would is be and why?
A5. If my artwork was cereal I’d snack on it all day long- it doesn’t matter what flavor it was. Then I’d REALLY never get anything done. Great. Please don’t turn my art into snacks. I’d be so fucked.
Q6. If you were in Willy Wonka’s factory, what would you be looking forward to the most?
A6. Everything except for those flowers that look kind of good but then they taste like wax….and that fucking tunnel with the giant worms!!! I’m definitely gonna barf- then I’ll push that one stupid chick into the chocolate river, oh wait, she totally turns fat- perfect.
Q7. What do you miss most about being a kid? What the best thing about being an adult?
A7. I’m definitely not all growned up yet.
Q8. First show (music) did you ever go to?
A8. Does The Simpsons on Ice count? If not, then maybe the Temptations?? James Brown? Not a whole lot of music came through Aspen when I was a kid- but I would have probably wished it was Salt and Peppa… push it.
Q9. If you knew when the world was going to freeze for ten minutes, what would you plan to do in those 10mins?
A9. Lets Get Naked.
Q10. What animal trait do you wish to possess?
A10. I had a lucid dream the other night for the first time, and I was flying. Definitely flying. Big black raven, golden eagle or California condor please. I’m gonna throw all my change into the lake and blink three times for that one.
The revealed bones and exposed skeletal bodies of animals ripped of flesh dancing amongst the living. There is a deep darkness that is entwined in the electric neon pop compositions of Hannah Stouffer. Always maintaining balance in her detailed compositions. Predators become her prey as she exposes what lies beneath in a technicolor dreamland of chaotic or blissful emotion.
