Hannah Stoll (b. 1997, NYC) was raised in Vermont where she first learned to paint in oil. She began a dedicated studio practice after graduating from Colorado College in 2020 and moving to the Roaring Fork Valley. There, Stoll started working with local artists and creative nonprofits, exhibiting paintings in group and solo shows around the state. Stoll became a 2022 grantee of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation and attended a 3-month long residency with GlogauAir (Berlin) in winter 2023. She held a solo exhibition at The Art Base (Basalt, CO) in July 2023, shortly before starting her MFA in Painting at Boston University’s College of Fine Arts.
-involvement with shop-
I first got involved with the Project Shop when I started renting a studio space nearby in 2021. I began with a pretty limited knowledge of screen printing, but Reina patiently taught me each step of the process as we printed various t-shirt orders and editions. I loved gaining confidence and muscle-memory with this kind of tactile skill. Printmaking involves so much troubleshooting and creative jerryrigging, as well as a kind of adherence to protocol that does not come naturally to me. So good for my patience and reward pathways!

The shop is a constant revolving door of creative people bringing in new ideas—this has built up an incredible extended community. Though I’ve moved away from the valley, I am very happy to be able to share this CSA design in collaboration with local Project Shop artists.

-The design-
This screenprint is an interpretation of an oil painting I made in 2022. I was interested in the patterns formed by people in public and the feeling of being one among many. This brought me to people-watching in public parks—I made distant sketches in such a way that nobody retained individual characteristics but kept their posture, leaning in or away from someone, huddled in little groups having their own afternoons. I was curious about the strangers and projected my
imagination onto their lives. These sketches ultimately informed a series of paintings I named “living background.”

As members of local communities and an incomprehensibly huge global one, coexisting in public spaces is the most natural thing in the world, and for me only became noteworthy after it became scarce during the pandemic. I began to see how passive inclusion among strangers was vitally important for my social animal brain. When we were finally able to do it again, it seemed to carry the positive energy of the entire community.

There is a sweet spot—no virus, no tolerance for discrimination, and the prioritization of building and maintaining public spaces for the benefit of all.

This t-shirt design, which I hope you wear to parks, libraries, subways, and mountain fairs, is about comfort in public spaces for everyone.
