Join us on October 20th for a unique Exhibition in Santa Monica. Artist Erin Hammond will be showcased at the Jeanie Madsen Gallery at Blank Spaces. The event will feature works from Hammond’s new series, “Meaningless Methods.”
American painter Erin Hammond engages the art historical genres of the nude and the society portrait. Beginning with writing, then alternating layers of pencil and acrylic, she combines active interest in the human figure with experiments in color and calligraphic scribble. Hammond works directly on wood grounds, allowing the knots and textures to puncture her surfaces. “I tend to focus on the roughness of line and the immediate processes of painting,” she says. “As we are unfinished beings, in the process of completion, my paintings reflect that concept as I overlap with paint and pencil lines, overworking some areas and leaving other areas unfinished.”
In 2015, Hammond sold over 90 paintings through galleries and solo shows. Her art work has now expanded into the international market, having artist residency in Zurich, and sales in Paris, London, and Berlin. The demand for her artwork has rapidly increased. Her artworks continue to exhibited at numerous international fairs and have found a place in major private collections worldwide.
