Jane Hammond: Paper Work
For nearly two decades, New York artist Jane Hammond has been using a fixed lexicon of 276 images to create paintings and works on paper, both flat and three-dimensional, that layer prints, photocopies, and photographs with collage and handwork. Her visual vocabulary borrows from carnival costume and puppetry, instructional manuals, board games, scrapbooks, maps, and more. Jane Hammond: Paper Work presents nearly 30 large-scale works on paper, many of which are unique and culled from private collections.
Jane Hammond: Paper Work is organized by Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, South Hadley, Massachusetts, with support from the Susan B. Weatherbie (class of 1972) Exhibition Development Fund, the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum Friends of Art, and the Andy Warhol Foundation. Janet and Clint Reilly make the San Francisco presentation possible.
