A New Look at Old Sights

A New Look at Old Sights

The Sum of Its Parts

New collage and mixed-media works by: Lisa Beaman and Joseph Hammer

AUGUST 24 – SEPTEMBER 28, 2013

Circles, squares, triangles, grids and lines – all are played and re-played in the dynamic works of Lisa Beaman and Joseph Hammer. Beaman, pulls from her 20 year experience as a master quilt artist. She works with found objects and antique papers to create both whimsical narratives with animals and characters while also creating introspective works regarding the human condition. Hammer loves history – you can tell the moment you become lost in his collages built from faces and spines of once-loved books. The stories emerge through his compositions and hint at adventures, mysteries and tales of old. His works create new stories as they live together in their newly arranged home.

Joseph Hammer is a rare talent who patient, careful reworking of old books are not be missed. Please go see them for yourself in the wonderful Davis Gallery on West 12th  Street now through September 28.
