I aim to depict movement and energy with paint. Lotus berthelotii is titled after an extinct plant, evoking a moment in time which we cannot return to. Initially, I was inspired by post-war action painting, but over time have developed my own vocabulary of textures, gestures, and techniques when applying paint. This work has further links with painters from generations before because house paint was commonly used by abstract expressionists who also challenged themselves to repurpose the medium for use in fine art. I hope to extend that legacy with a lyricism and spontaneity that speaks to the complexities of contemporary life with the calligraphic elements offering a nod to a more cosmopolitan, and hopefully inclusive, art world. This work is framed.

Thomas Hammer (b. 1985) is NYC based painter known for his ink works on paper and acrylic paintings on canvas. His ink works are inspired by the spontaneity and vim of post-war action painting, but employ a unique vocabulary of mark making. He creates a sense of depth through variety of textures that vary between smooth and flowing and staccato and rhythmic. The intent is to harness, rather than let loose, energy. Thomas’ acrylic paintings are built in layers. The first few accrue with gestural flourish and become more deliberate as the composition emerges. Each layer interacts with the one before it, obscuring some of the canvas beneath it while adding texture, color, and complexity to the painting. The end result is an artifact of the process but it is also a constructed reality, akin to a carefully composed photograph that flattens three dimensional space to a single plane.
