Glowing ‘Lowlands’ review

I’m so lucky to have the eminent Dr Sasha Grishin follow my career, right from one of my earliest exhibitions Of Landscape and Memory, which he reviewed in 2000.

On Friday Dr Grishin reviewed Lowlands in glowing terms, in a piece titled ‘Putting a touch of magic into everyday reality‘, in the Canberra Times that opened with ‘she creates gem-like tableaux, which shimmer on the gallery walls’. The mention of Clarice Beckett and the ‘European tradition of the sublime’  is high praise indeed, and greatly appreciated.

‘Hammond has been exhibiting for over two decades and has established a reputation as an artist who manages to transfigure a common everyday reality into something that has been touched with a bit of magic.’
