Tom Hammick (b.1963) is a British artist based in East
Sussex and London. Moved by the minutiae in life, he reflects on
man's place in the world. His seductive landscapes forged from
painted canvas or cut wood, reveal the 'otherworldliness' of life.
They are metaphors for the human condition; reflecting states of
mind, or expression about transience, fragility and awe.
Tom Hammick is a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art, Painting and
Printmaking at the University of Brighton and Visiting Lecturer
Fine Art University of Ulster and Nova Scotia College of Art and
Design (NSCAD University). He has work in many major public and
corporate collections including the British Museum (Collection of
Prints and Drawings), Victoria and Albert Museum, Bibliotheque
Nationale de France (Collection of Prints and Drawings), Deutsche
Bank, Yale Centre for British Art, and The Library of Congress,
In 2015, Lund Humphries published a major new monograph on Tom Hammick,
with texts by Julian Bell.
