A selection of works by British artist Tom Hammick are hung in the Neurological Rehabilitation unit in Charing Cross Hospital. The works on display demonstrate Hammick’s imaginative handling of colour and placement of figures, alone or in groups. Often working through the night, Hammick conjures dusk, dawn or moonlight with his palette of beautiful colours. The pair of woodcuts on display, Compound Day and Compound Night, illustrate his fascination with showing how the same building appears in different light.
An expert printmaker, Hammick often uses the compositional strategies seen in Japanese prints and Chinese scroll paintings and is inspired by the German Expressionists’ powerful use of colour.
