Waiting for Time
Sea paintings and works on paper
Saturday 10 September to Sunday 30 October 2016
Artist’s Talk: Tom Hammick in conversation with Ivan Samarine on Saturday 8 October 3.30 for 4pm. Tickets: £5 from Sladers Yard.
Internationally acclaimed artist Tom Hammick fills Sladers Yard with paintings and woodcuts inspired by the Sea. View the works here.
The sea has been a recurring image throughout Hammick’s work, often as a location of dreams or escape from a world in crisis. In the present exhibition, which includes new paintings and prints alongside a range of works from the past four years, figures, often recognizable as members of the artist’s family, are pictured adrift – inhabiting islands circled by rising seas and erupting volcanoes, or sailing into a wide and empty sea.

Hammick 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. In 2015, Lund Humphries published a major new monograph on Tom Hammick, with text by Julian Bell. This is his first major selling exhibition at Sladers Yard.
