Hannah Kidd studied sculpture at Otago Polytechnic School of Art in New Zealand..
Her sculptures are constructed from pieces of steel and corrugated iron. Using bolt cutters, tin snips, and a mig welder, she welds them together on a scale ranging from butterflies to bulls.
Kidd is inspired by observations in her immediate surroundings. She often substitutes animals for humans in her tableaux of familiar social situations and behavior. Humor can function as a vehicle to discuss the human condition, she says.
Her work has been exhibited across New Zealand and abroad.
