About

New York artist Thomas Hammer is known for his motion filled ink works on paper. His ink works, created with a unique tool that’s a fusion of a squeegee and a brush, are inspired by the spontaneity and vim of post-war action painting, though they employ a unique vocabulary of mark making. He creates a sense of depth through the variety of textures that vary between smooth and flowing, staccato and rhythmic. The physical process of creating his ink paintings involves a degree of performance. The brushwork requires gestures that activate the body like dance. He works fast and relies on instinct to achieve the right balance of spontaneity and control. This one-of-a-kind black and white 36 inch square original artwork is not framed. It is signed by the artist on the back of the artwork. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental US and global shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery is included. Thomas Hammer was born in 1985 and grew up in Ithaca, New York. He completed his BS at Cornell University. Hammer started his career as an interaction designer at digital agencies in New York City. He says of his work, “I aim to create emotionally impactful works that explore the relationship between human activity, our natural surroundings, and the possibility of disaster. Though non-representational, my works are inspired by photography—particularly images of vast landscapes, outer space, and major meteorological events. My work alternates from organic and spontaneous to strictly linear and mechanical. I aim to balance these forces to create work that is chaotic, but still controlled. To me, a successful piece is viewed as a window to an imagined space rather than as a physical object.” His works are represented by Artspace Warehouse Los Angeles and have been published in Architectural Digest. His artworks have been exhibited internationally and acquired by collectors around the world.
