Luv a body
Okay. I like Ildiko Hammonds work. Is it the lushness of the colour? Is it the thick textures (and to hell with the cost of paint)? Is it the obvious relish she has for her subject and medium? I dont know. Im no critic.
Her latest exhibition The Body is a celebration of human qualities like love, cheekiness, passion and of our connection to the natural.
Despite the controversy that her work may sometimes bring about (someone objected to the nakedness when she was hanging the exhibition but hey, thats the nature of nudes) Ildiko is following a long line of artists who use the human figure as a metaphor for their understandings.
The Body will officially open at Luv a Coffee Caf in Carrington Street in Lismore next Monday, August 14, from 6-8pm. The exhibition will run through to the end of September.
