Oh my goodness…
Isn’t it the most wonderful feeling when you come across an artist for the first time who you just love and it’s all a RUSH? Right this second I am newly breathless over Jane Hammond‘s work. To me, she’s like a modern day Joseph Cornell, who plays a big role in Encyclopedia of the Exquisite. In fact, almost every piece she’s done seems to perfectly echo little themes from the book—celestial sightings, circuses, geishas, poetry, strange lands, beautiful beings. And I was happy to link to a New York Times review that called her paintings, “encyclopedic.” Please look at her artwork following the link. Everything is simply gorgeous.
Jane Hammond’s work looks terrific! And I’ve read the review of your book in the NYTimes. Can’t wait to get hold of it! Wow! You look to be a kindred spirit, for sure! Have you seen the Fortuny Museum in Venice?
May I also direct you to my website? And, since I don’t have too many images of my work there (it needs updating), may I request that you google my name?
I’d LOVE to connect!
Thanks so much for writing in. I just looked at your website, and did a little googling, and your work is very good! I’m so pleased to hear from you, as I see that we like a lot of the same things. I’ll have to put the Fortuny Museum on my list for the next trip to Venice, one of my favorite places.
I hope you’ll like the book! And I’ll look for you on f/b. It’s nice to connect with kindred souls.
All best wishes,
Back after ever so long. Now reading about treating and interpreting waking life like one would deconstruct a dream. What a great site you have!! Very best, Elaine
Glad you’re back! So nice to hear from you, as ever.
All my best,
