Jen Hamilton (CA)
In her graphic prints, Jen Hamilton creates domestic structures by tearing, shredding and ripping her own old paintings, drawings and etchings apart to create something new. This is an exploration and a research of the concept of “home” and the sacrifices that entails. Hamilton refers in her work to her own entering into motherhood while trying to maintain an art practice. Her works have a simplicity where she contrasts negative space and bold colors and printfragments. The structures she creates are an intimate visualisation of the clashes that two great loves can create.
