August 5, 2017: Ann Hamilton at Gemini G.E.L.

Gemini G.E.L. is pleased to present new editions by Ann Hamilton. "Ann Hamilton – New Work" features eight screenprints alongside three blind-embossment etchings. Ann Hamilton welcomes experimentation and collaboration as integral possibilities in her work. New objects and directions have come out of her collaborative situations, and since the beginning of her seventeen year relationship with Gemini G.E.L., the artist has crafted prints and inventive sculptural multiples using a variety of media and non traditional materials. A new series of three etchings features blind-embossment prints with hand-applied ink. To generate the text-based imagery for the largest of the three works, Hamilton was inspired by the Universal Declaration of Human Right and created a concordance layout.

New objects and directions have come out of her collaborative situations, and since the beginning of her seventeen year relationship with Gemini G.E.L., the artist has crafted prints and inventive sculptural multiples using a variety of media and non traditional materials. A new series of three etchings features blind-embossment prints with hand-applied ink. To generate the text-based imagery for the largest of the three works, Hamilton was inspired by the Universal Declaration of Human Right and created a concordance layout. 

Also newly published and on view are eight screenprints related to the artist’s 2015 exhibition the common SENSE, commissioned by the Henry Art Gallery. As a Visiting Fellow at the University of Washington, Hamilton was given access to the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, The University of Libraries Special Collections, and the Henry’s holdings of costumes, textiles, and photographs. Hamilton drew from these collections utilizing mammals, birds, and amphibian specimens from the Burke Museum.

Born in Lima, Ohio, in 1956, Ann Hamilton received a BFA in textile design from the University of Kansas in 1979 and an MFA in sculpture from the Yale School of Art in 1985. From 1985 to 1991, she taught on the faculty of the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Additional info about the exhibition and the artist is available on the 
Gemini G.E.L. website.
