Ann Hamilton
at Gemini G.E.L.

November 24, 2014 - February 20, 2015

The works included in our winter exhibition focus on Ann Hamilton's attentiveness to materials and to her richly allusive visual language. legend layers lithographs of manipulated cloth mounted onto canvas, returning the intersecting images to a textile form. Utilizing the iconic, universal form of a coat, shell envelopes a broad spectrum of references and concepts, not the least of felt blankets used in the printing process. The scripts invite an interplay between line and space, drawing a correlate between writing and weaving. 

A selection of Hamilton's newly commissioned works are concurrently on view at the Henry Gallery in Seattle, Washington through April of 2015. Born in Lima, Ohio in 1956, Hamilton has been a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, NEA Visual Arts Fellowship, United States Artists Fellowship, the Heinz Award. In 1991 she was chosen to represent the United States at the Sao Paulo Bienal and was selected for the 1999 Venice Biennale. In 1992, she established her home and practice in Columbus, Ohio.
