Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

Thomas Hammer’s acrylic paintings on canvas contrast hard-edged geometric abstraction with a painterly touch. Mixing abstract and representational elements, his works are sketched digitally in Photoshop before being executed on canvas. These works explore the subconscious, but are inspired by modern art and the proliferation of images easily shared on the web - from advertising and popular music to film and social media.

This painting includes references to space travel, which has disappeared from public discourse for decades, but has recently reemerged as an endeavor taken on by the private sector. The image also plays with shifts in scale. In it the astronaut appears close up and from far away in different, in the beginning and in the middle of his / her journey. In addition, areas of the canvases are repeated at a smaller scale, as if offering a window (or mirror) to itself.
