We sell work by Magnus Hammick,
Magnus Hammick (left) and Paul Newman (right), have collaborated on a project relating to understanding the art of depicting the landscape, finding synergy in this common ground, and sharing a visual language. Hammicks immersive oil paintings are a follow on from earlier performance work made in makeshift studios, in this instance a Yellow Cube within the landscape, articulating extended periods of time spent fully immersed in the painting experience, of mark making and abstraction.
Their work so far will be presented during Somerset Art Weeks Open Studios 2020 event, 19th September - 4th October. More info to follow.
