Harmony Hammond has an uncanny ability to coax meaning out of materials. At times angling towards the psychological, proto-feminist aura of Eva Hesse, other times incorporating Neo-Dada ideas into Rauschenberg-like combines, Hammond uses Arte Povera materials such as straw, hair, rubber and rope to corral a raw physical presence with an unsettling undercurrent of unexplained violence. The underlying conflicts of queer and feminist struggle percolate Hammond’s art – occasionally she hides a second dimension on the underside of her sculptural paintings; implications of things suppressed or of secrets not revealed. At Alexander Gray through May 26.
