Tom Hammick in Conversation with Julian Bell
Saturday 27 June, 2pm

Bridport Arts Centre is honoured and extremely excited to play host to the opening of Tom Hammicks’ exhibition tour, coinciding with the release of a new monograph of the artist’s paintings and prints featuring text from Julian Bell.

The works vary between states of being. Sometimes joyful, insightful and often deeply personal. Hammick’s imagery of landscapes or architecture conjure feelings of familiarity yet there is a distance about them, an instilled ‘otherworldiness’.

What most would consider an innocent everyday scene or a mundane domestic setting is transformed through Hammick. The final result appears as a beautifully sensitive account of how he witnesses the world around him, always with subtle but tense reference to the human condition.

Tom Hammick is a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art, Painting and Printmaking at the University of Brighton and Visiting.  Lecturer Fine Art University of Ulster and Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD University). He has work in many major public and corporate collections including the British Museum (Collection of Prints and Drawings), Victoria and Albert Museum, Bibliotheque Nationale de France (Collection of Prints and Drawings), Deutsche Bank, Yale Centre for British Art, and The Library of Congress, Washington DC.
