Hollis Hammonds questions consumerist culture, depicting complex accumulations of objects frequently expressed as the debris piles resulting from natural and man-made disasters. Her current work, including large-scale drawings and found object installations, is derived from what she terms the “collective consciousness”. Gleaning images from the Internet and objects from street corners, she reconstructs her own childhood memories. Hammonds’ Blanket of Fog is at once a personal story, a conjured memory, and a projected social fantasy.
