February 26 – March 16, 2019
Tuesday February 26th, 6:00-8:00 pm
February 26, 2019 is the culmination of 14 years (2003-2017) of seemingly inconspicuous memories splashed across canvasses and sculptured in resin by Anne Hamilton. Being autistic comes with an enhanced ability to remember even some of the most unimportant things like a specific date she drank a sprite and so on. In its size and realism, Anne’s paintings give the viewer a sense of how clearly and vividly she sees the image in her memory. Another part of being autistic is collecting–and with that the satisfaction of organizing said collection. Part of the thrill of creating her resin sculptures is the ensuing arranging of the bottles by brand or colour.
“Although autism is an important aspect of my work, at the base of my creations is colour. In working in and showcasing bright colours, I can give the viewer hopefully the same happiness that I experienced creating it and reliving the memories.” – Anne Hamilton
