Tom Hammick is a painter and printmaker with a studio near the sea in Sussex, and Nova Scotia, Canada. He was born in 1963 and trained at the University of Manchester and Camberwell College of Art. He has work in many public and private collections worldwide.
"Like Morandi's still lifes, Hammick's small canvases have the negative virtue of unpretentiousness: all they seem to insist upon is that a certain person performed certain acts of looking and of making. A small private assertion - which turns out to count for quite a lot. Also like Morandi, Hammick clearly takes relish in his oils, with their creamy slippery clots and glazes - but it's the pleasure with which someone hums a tune to himself, not that of hollering it for all the streets to hear. So these quiet, rather tender acts of concentration draw you in by commanding your moral respect ..."
