Jane Hammond is an alchemist. Since 1988 she has worked with a collection of 276 images. She transforms the images of this lexicon to create magical new ones in the form of paintings, drawings and prints. Hammond compiled her collection of images from a wide variety of sources, including manuals, children’s books, books on magic and puppetry, medical journals, technical illustrations, matchbook covers, labels, charts and maps.
Hammond's first print at Shark’s Ink., was a lithograph with collage, titled “My Heavens!” In 2005 Hammond made a new lithograph, “Love Laughs”., about language, culture and signs. In 2007 she created a three-dimensional lithograph titled “Spells and Incantations”.
Watch for Hammond's new print "Snapshot Odyssey", coming soon. This lithograph will combine her long-standing interest in games with her recent passion for collecting vernacular photography.
