Wood Walkers at The Eagle Gallery 13th September - 15th October 2023
A two person show with Denise de Cordova at The Eagle Gallery. A collaborative exhibition that brings together ceramics and sculpture by Denise de Cordova with paintings and large scale woodcuts by Tom Hammick.
Both artists have often spoken of the inspiration they find in wildernesses, woods and frontier environments. Each explores ideas about identity and our human connection to landscape. Sharing a mutual passion for the forested Pacific North West and the beings that might inhabit the spaces between the trees, their current works is suggestive of mythological and shamanistic figures, living in solitude, at one with nature. Following studio visits earlier this year the artists established a dialogue through which they have created new works that bear the traces of each other's approach to narrative, colour and mark-making. - Emma Hill, The Eagle Gallery.
