Meet Jane Lafarge Hamill, a painter, visiting lecturer, and founding director of The Project Rooms. Her paintings investigate portraiture, memory and human interaction. From real to the surreal, mundane to grand, Hamill’s works highlight subjects ranging from close friends to compelling historical figures. In her most recent works, the subjects are more fugitive, fleeting figures whose aesthetic roots align more with a visual brain scan than a traditional profile.
These works were all made in a fishing village in Northern Iceland during a 2 month artist residency during January and June of 2015. They are currently on display at the Joshua Liner Gallery in Manhattan, check out the show if you’re traveling through!
