Jane Hammond is an accomplished painter, sculptor, and printmaker living and working in New York. Her work typically includes images pulled from a wide range of sources, including illustrations for children’s books, technical manuals, and esoteric tomes. Hammond has acknowledged that text and literary elements are important to her work and she has previously collaborated with poets for titles and for source material. Poet John Ashbery devised titles for a series of works made in 1993 and ’94. In 2004, she collaborated with poet Raphael Rubinstein for a sculpture at the Whitney Museum of American Art, called Fallen. Displayed as a field of autumnal leaves spread across a low plinth, the work is composed of thousands of handmade leaves printed by Hammond, each inscribed with the name of a soldier killed in the Iraq War.
Hammond’s work can be found in the collections of the Library of Congress, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, France; the Albertina in Vienna, Austria; and New York’s Museum of Modern Art. In 2001 she was the subject of a travelling retrospective, staged at the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art, the Contemporary Museum of Honolulu, and the Art Museum of the University of Houston, among others.
