An onsite and online exhibition of new opera-inspired works by Glyndebourne Associate Artist 2021-22.
‘How can I possibly compete with music and the human voice, with the conjuring tricks of stage light, and the drama of lives lived to extremis unfolding through choreography? It has been such a delicious thing to try and do nevertheless, and to have this space to show you the results of my efforts.’
– Tom Hammick
Tom Hammick is Glyndebourne’s Associate Artist for 2021-2022. Hammick (b.1963) is a British painter and printmaker. Hailed as a ‘visionary artist’, Hammick’s works are informed by a reverence for opera, nature, poetry, cinema and myth, woven together with personal memory, and his mesmeric use of colour, vivid outlines and expressive mark-making.
This major exhibition of opera inspired woodcuts, etchings and paintings marks the first of two festival exhibitions by Hammick and is presented both online and in Gallery 94 at Glyndebourne. All the woodcuts and etchings are made by Hammick in his studio in small editions. Each impression has unique variations in colouring and patination, which results in an image that, while using the same printing plates, remains unique. These are termed ‘editions variable’.
This exhibition has been curated by Nerissa Taysom. To download a PDF list of works, please click here.
All framed works are sold as described. They are framed using non-reflective Artglass, float mounts and stained oak frames. Our recommended frame is Ochre Framing. Please enquire for further information about the exhibition or to discuss bespoke framing – firstname.lastname@example.org.
