Jane Hammond
AUGUST 22, 2008-FEBRUARY 8, 2009

 

Throughout her career Jane Hammond has made works on paper, sculpture, prints and paintings. The process of collage is often included when she works in any medium. The exhibition at MCA Denver represented Hammond's varied interests in figurative subject matter. Each work shown is a composite of found images that are collaged into overlapping storylines. In Hammond's photographs, worlds collide. Her working methodology is systematic, culling archives of found photographic ephemera to create surrealistic points of intrigue.

Jane Hammond was born in the United States in 1950 and currently lives and works in New York, NY. Hammond received a BA from Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, an MA and an MFA from University of Wisconsin, Madison. She has had solo exhibitions at the Achenbach Foundation at the DeYoung Museum, San Francisco, CA and the Detroit Institute of Art, MI among others. Group exhibitions include the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY and Galerie Lelong, Zurich, Switzerland. Hammond was the recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant Award in 2000.
