Thoughts on Frederick Hammersley

Image coming soon.

Steve Roden writes about the work of painter Frederick Hammersley, whose work is on view at LA Louver through May 12, 2012.

Roden writes: "when i discovered hammersley's organics they felt not only like the perfect antidote to the bombastic gargantuan works of painters like anselm kiefer and julian schnabel, but they also felt like an ally…  a lot of decisions in [Hammersley's] work revolved around intuition, and i believe that because of this, the work is open in terms of readings and/or experience. an intuitive process – as opposed to a 'plan' or a 'propaganda'; offers the viewer a potential intuited response – creating meaning through experience, as opposed to creating meaning through knowing… this is what makes the work so generous."
