Piece description from the artist

Hammer’s acrylic paintings on canvas contrast hard-edged geometric abstraction with a painterly touch. They mix abstract and representational elements, and are sketched digitally before being executed in Photoshop. These works explore the subconscious, but are inspired by contemporary aesthetics—from advertising and popular music to fashion and social media.

About Thomas Hammer

Los Angeles, CA

Thomas aims to create emotionally impactful works that explore relationship between human activity, our natural surroundings, and the possibility of disaster. Though non-representational, his works are inspired by photography – particularly images of vast landscapes, outer space, and major meteorological events. His work alternates from organic and spontaneous to strictly linear and mechanical. He aims to balance these forces to create work that is chaotic, but still controlled. To him, a successful piece is viewed as a window to an imagined space rather than as a physical object. His artworks include gestural black and white ink drawings and more colorful canvases and works on paper.

Thomas Hammer was born in 1985 and grew up in Ithaca, NY. He completed his BS at Cornell University and started his career as an interaction designer at digital agencies in New York City. There he began his artistic practice. His work has been included in exhibitions across the country and has been placed in collections locally and internationally.
