Patrick Earl Hammie: Birth Throes

October 06 - September 22, 2018

Patrick Earl Hammie is an American visual artist best known for his large-scale portraits and figurative paintings that draw from art history and visual culture to examine cultural identity, social equity, and critical aspects of gender and race today. Birth Throes, a collection of portraits and allegories, meditates on the relationships between the artist and his mother, mortality, and the capacity for black experience to disrupt, diversify, and enrich American culture.
