Domestic Methaphors12. Mar2012
Turning furniture into Domestic Metaphors, Robert Hammond's furniture/art pieces challenge the ordinary and the way we picture everyday objects. His works have a life of their own, mixing domestic symmetries with contemporary context and illusion - boldly transforming familiar objects into new art. Defying convention, ordinary items are up-sided, corrugated, broken, and made transparent.
Robert Hammond's work is about shifting the way we see the familiar - employing visual devices that present illusion, flashing contrasts and movement. A mix of abstraction and subdivision - provocative and loud, Robert Hammond's quest is one for new aesthetics.
