Jane Hammond searches through bookshops and flea markets in search of printed material including manuals, scientific texts, stamps, cards, and cartoons. She assembles these varied elements adding examples of her own printmaking to construct collages with layers of meaning and new narratives. Greek Vase with Yellow Plums and Carolina Parrot is bursting with flowers gathered from the artist’s supply of source material, including antique botanical prints, but closer inspection also reveals animals and insects amid the foliage, lending the work a much more complicated and ambiguous character.
