ARTWORKS AVAILABLE WORKS EXHIBITIONS CV

Kirrily Hammond’s practice spans painting, printmaking and drawing. The urban environment has been a constant theme in her work, and while references to a classical landscape tradition are clearly evident, her images are not mere depictions of a specific location, but rather, subjective and psychological responses to her surroundings. Hammond’s works are developed at an intimate scale, mostly 30x30cm oil on linen, though recent works have focused on miniatures painted directly onto copper plate.

Born in Newcastle, NSW in 1975, Hammond studied at Canberra and Glasgow School of Art. She graduated with Honours in 1997, and completed a Masters degree at the University of Melbourne in 2003. She has been exhibiting since 1995 and her work is held in public collections including: Wollongong University; The Australian National University; LaTrobe Regional Gallery; Moreland City Council; and the Warrnambool Art Gallery collections.

Memento | Kirrily Hammond

Memento | Kirrily Hammond

Memento is an exhibition of paintings inspired by my recent experiences living for a year in Belgium, soaking up Flemish art, the landscape and the northern light. Some of the paintings are based European urban environments, connecting directly to other works that depict my suburban environment here in Melbourne. Whilst there is a transitory nature to the imagery, caught in the midst of busy family life, my detailed oil paintings on linen and copper are about capturing and cherishing these small, quiet moments of beauty in our everyday lives.
