Patrick Earl Hammie
, born in New Haven, Connecticut in 1981, is an artist best known for his monumental portraits related primarily to themes of identity, history, and narrative. Considering the potential paintings of the human figure have to reflect the values of the period in which they are produced, Hammie’s work investigates the expectations built into this canonical genre, probing and dismantling the idealizing impulses that have historically shaped it. Drawing on the emotive qualities of Romanticist painting and its use of heroic proportions to engage with political and humanistic expression, he focuses specifically on constructions of gender and race, putting pressure on these categories as a means of expanding understandings of identity, and reconfiguring inherited conceptions of ideal beauty and heroic nudity.
