Hammer is the author of several important scholarly books on the art of Francis Bacon and Professor of History and Philosophy of Art at the University of Kent.

Since the early 1990s, Ken Currie has become known for his closely observed and often unsettling portrayal of the body, depicting the damage inflicted by illness and decay as a response to what he felt was the sickness of contemporary society.

An exhibition catalogue with an essay by Martin Hammer is available here.
