Lyndsey Ingram


 

 

As a gallery with its foundations in printmaking, Lyndsey Ingram has long admired Tom Hammick's genuine commitment and intrepid approach to graphic art. Atlantica presents several examples of Hammick's expansive woodcuts, with their richly textured surfaces patterned by the coarse oak wood grain. The scale of the woodcuts ranges from intimate to monumental, with some spanning several large sheets. The breadth of work is remarkable. 
 
With great reverence for storytelling in all its forms, Hammick's works draw from deep wells of myth, literature, music and poetry. 
 
The sea, at times translucent and inviting, at others concealing, thick and lightless, becomes a metaphor for a voyage, those we embark on personally and collectively.
