Tom Hammick

An onsite and online exhibition of new opera-inspired works by Glyndebourne Associate Artist 2021-22.

Tom Hammick (b.1963) is Glyndebourne’s Associate Artist for 2022. This year, he has responded to single moments in each of this year’s productions. Hammick’s work will hang on the Blue Side of the covered walkway.

Hammick studied Art History at the University of Manchester and later Fine Art Painting at Camberwell College of Art and at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Canada. He has an MA in Printmaking, also from Camberwell, and taught Fine Art Painting and Printmaking at the University of Brighton for many years. He now lives and works in London. Hammick is represented by Lyndsey Ingram Gallery in London and Galerie Boisserée in Cologne.

In 2016 he was the recipient of the V&A Prize at the International Print Biennale and his works are held in many major public and private collections, including the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Deutsche Bank, Yale Center for British Art and The Library of Congress, Washington DC.

Recent solo exhibitions have included My Sister’s Garden (2022) and Nightfire (2020) at Lyndsey Ingram Gallery. In 2020, he collaborated with designer Paul Smith on a series of limited edition prints. Next year, Hammick will travel to the United States as the recipient of the prestigious Josef & Anni Albers Foundation Residency.

Hammick is a painter and a printmaker. His works are informed by a passion for poetry, opera, film, wonderment for the environment and deepest concerns around climate catastrophe.
