Exhibition: ‘Lunar Voyage’ – Tom Hammick
Location: Flowers Gallery, NEW YORK Chelsea, 529 West 20th Street, New York. NY 10011.
Dates: 24 October – 16 December 2017
Tom Hammick has described landscape in his work as a metaphor to explore an “imaginary and mythological dreamscape.” Drawing from a wide range of sources, from Japanese woodblock prints to Northern European Romantic painting, utopian Modernism, and contemporary cinema, Hammick’s depictions of isolated human dwellings grounded in uncanny dream-like settings summon the uneasy atmosphere of a psychologically-charged thriller or a dystopian suburban nightmare.
‘Can one embark on a journey without ever setting foot from home?’ This question lingers over Tom Hammick’s latest series of paintings and prints, Lunar Voyage, a metaphorical interstellar road-trip, calling on the nocturnal reveries of nightwalkers, armchair explorers, star-crossed lovers, composers, poets, and virtual adventurers of screen-based worlds. At times fragmented and associative, the imagery of ‘Lunar Voyage’ channels fever-dreams or night visions, resembling the descent into psychosis of the narrator in Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper, or a journey of memory, such as that sparked by the madeleine dipped in tea in Marcel Proust’s À la recherche du temps perdu.
