Tom Hammick – Wall, Window, World, Flowers Gallery · 82 Kingsland Rd · London, E2, until 10th October 2015
Hammick’s paintings are quite engrossing in that they immediately draw the viewer into the slightly mysterious worlds he has created and make you want to understand what may be going on. Paintings, figures and buildings feature and whether they be in the paintings and prints inspired by his recent year-long spell as Artist in Residence at the ENO, or the natural or urban landscapes you get a feeling of edginess of the unknown and even isolation.
At the same time as this memorable show a new book by Julian Bell Tom Hammick: Wall, Window, World is published by Lund Humphries. It is a welcome survey and examination of his work to date.
