Imaginative Imagery

SEATTLE, WA.... Imaginative new works by Jane Hammond are on view at Greg Kucera Gallery this month. Hammond's works on paper are an intricate blend of graphite and ink drawings, rubber stampings, and linoleum block printings. The pieces often begin with stacks of various cutouts from which the artist chooses appealing images to begin the gluing and layering processes. Allusions to Hammond's interests in astrology, phrenology, knot diagrams, technical illustrations, and shadow puppets often surface in her pieces. The artist's works have been featured in galleries and museums across the country.
