Jane Hammond
Jane Hammond鈥檚 botanical collages offer a re-interpretation of the painterly tradition of botanical art. Whilst the spectacular arrangements of flowers, grasses and seeds, accompanied by insects and birds are curiously familiar, the juxtaposition of images from a myriad of places and time results in works that are entirely original.
As a Collagist, Hammond finds her imagery from endless sources, including old calendars, cards, wrapping paper, cloth... She describes herself as 鈥having a diverse practice collecting found information and transforming it鈥. The collages look carefree and spontaneous, but they demand phenomenal care and application. As art historian and critic, Jenny Ulglo says, 鈥arrangement is everything鈥. Jane brings a sense of harmony to her collections of found imagery that she meticulously crafts into an artwork. Her collages hi-light the incredible nuances, niches and unexpected connections that exist in the natural word.
