May Hands works with the detritus of everyday urban life, appropriating urban leftovers to reflect on her surrounding environment. Natural and man-made objects are brought together into assemblages and installations that play on the characteristics and cultural associations of her discoveries. Her work embraces chance and mistake as she pushes materials to their limits.
May Hands is currently studying for her MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London. She was awarded a BA (hons) in Painting from Camberwell College of Art in 2013. Solo exhibitions include an artist residency and exhibition at Bosse & Baum, London (2018), I Loved You For a Long Time, Supplement, London (2018) and Freschissimi, T293, Rome (2015).
