Tom Hammick 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 has been 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, Washington DC. He attended the University of Manchester from 1982 to 1985 and Camberwell College of Art from 1987 to 1992.
In 2015, Lund Humphries published a major new monograph on Tom Hammick, with texts by Julian Bell.
