American artist Erin Hammond’s distinctive, original style is a free-form version of figurative expressionism that allows her female representations to speak for themselves. Each figure is saturated with a unique set of qualities and characteristics apparent through her features and pose. Erin Hammond’s artworks have been exhibited at numerous international art fairs and galleries. They have found a place in major private collections worldwide.

This large, colorful horizontal artwork is 48" tall by 60" wide. The artist employs a variety of media, painting on bare wood panels to enhance the warmth and continuing nature of her artwork. She signs the front of the artwork and paints the sides as a continuation of the front. This artwork is wired and ready to hang and does not require framing. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Shipping of this artwork within the continental US (including insurance) is an additional $425. Affordable global shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included.

Erin Nicole Hammond was born in 1982 in Milwaukee, WI. She studied Fine Art at University of Wisconsin Parkside. Erin moved to Los Angeles in 2010. In 2013 she was a top rated artist in RAWawards, the largest indie art competition in the US.

Erin Hammond engages the art historical genres of the nude and the society portrait through the syntaxes of the fashion sketch and abstraction. By alternating layers of pencil and acrylic, she combines an active interest in the female body with experiments in color, calligraphic scribble and shading.

Hammond works directly on wood, allowing the knots and textures to puncture her surfaces. “I tend to focus on the roughness of line and the immediate processes of painting,” she says. “As we are unfinished beings, in the process of completion, my paintings reflect that concept as I overlap with paint and pencil lines, overworking some areas and leaving other areas unfinished.” As both an actor and a model, Hammond uses the unfinished elements of her aesthetic to explore the contemporary fascination with (im)perfection latent in those professions.

About Erin Hammond

American painter Erin Hammond engages the art historical genres of the nude and the society portrait through the syntaxes of the fashion sketch and abstraction. Beginning with writing, then alternating layers of pencil and acrylic, she combines an active interest in the female body with experiments in color and calligraphic scribble. Hammond works directly on wood grounds, allowing the knots and textures to puncture her surfaces. “I tend to focus on the roughness of line and the immediate processes of painting,” she says. “As we are unfinished beings, in the process of completion, my paintings reflect that concept as I overlap with paint and pencil lines, overworking some areas and leaving other areas unfinished.” As both an actor and a model, Hammond uses the unfinished elements of her aesthetic to explore the contemporary fascination with (im)perfection latent in those professions.
