Charlie Hammond is an artist who lives and works in Glasgow. Hammond makes paintings, drawings, prints and collage, employing themes of domestic labour, work, familiar objects and the ‘everyday’. Household chores, newspapers, pot plants, taps, children’s drawings, crashed cars and fungi are part of Hammond’s painted lexicon. Ceramic objects, cut up canvas and industrial foils have all made their way into his material experimentation with broken wheelie bins being transformed into chairs for the viewer.
