Convoluted Color Cacophony, an exhibition of paintings by “blob” artist Mike Hammer will open with an artist reception on March 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Rosenbaum Contemporary gallery, 150 Yamato Road in Boca Raton, Fla. The event is free and open to the public. Those interested in attending can RSVP to email@example.com or by calling 561-994-9180 x203. Hammer’s works will remain on exhibit through April 18 and can be viewed during regular gallery hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
Hammer is known for his “blob” paintings, three-dimensional works created by using paint like liquid clay to create circular layers. While each resulting “blob” is an individual object with a unique size, shape and color scheme, each “blob” also works in relation to all of the others to create a unified whole. The resulting paintings are works of pure visual pleasure with paint as both subject and object and contrasting color combinations as visual stimulation.
Hammer’s work has been the subject of articles in The Toronto Star and Los Angeles Times, among other publications, and can be found in several collections including the Department of Foreign Affairs, New York.
