Tom Hammick: Nightfire, film by Lucy Emms for Lyndsey Ingram
Tom talks about his work which includes etchings, woodcuts and paintings made within the last 18 months.
Showing at Lyndsey Ingram Gallery from 29 September to 13 November.
Lyndsey Ingram is pleased to present new etchings, woodcuts and paintings by British artist Tom Hammick in the gallery space at 20 Bourdon Street. The gallery’s first project with Hammick in the spring, Atlantica, was taken online and experienced virtually. The team are delighted to now be able to share Hammick’s new body of work in person.
Nightfire will be a selection of work made within the last 18 months. These prints and paintings are connected by a stirring undercurrent that crackles to the surface as vivid outlines and surges across the work in expressive striations of colour. Hammick revisits compositions that have their roots in operatic narratives, poetry, film and literature. He explores what the different mediums of oil paint on canvas, woodcut and etching bring to each new iteration.
