Patrick Earl Hammie: After Image
October 16th 5:00 - 9:00pm
Exhibition runs through November 28th.
Patrick Earl Hammie is interested in the historical aspects of portraiture, and how it has served to negotiate issues of identity. Hammie considers the pictorial, technical and narrative conventions of Western art, and explores the ways artists have imagined the body. The artist inserts black and brown male bodies into this tradition, in a manner that subverts the perceptions of ruined and objectified bodies.
