Artist's Statement

My work explores images and associations with the land, earth and sea as well as the human form using mixed media to convey the depth of sensuality and fragility of the world.

In 2017 Wilson-Hammond received a creation grant from Arts Nova Scotia for the production of work which will be shown at ARTsPLACE, Annapolis Royal, Memory Lane Heritage Village and St. Francis Xavier Art Gallery in 2018.

‘My shadow rests lightly on the land…fleeting and ephemeral’

During the last fifty years, Charlotte Wilson-Hammond has used her body as a way of accessing the strength, sensuality, vulnerability, beauty, and now the fragility of the female form, all part of the eternal cycle of birth, growth, regeneration, and death.

Three years ago Wilson-Hammond began a new series of conté drawings and shadow photograph/print/drawings, once again using herself as the subject. In this new work, Wilson-Hammond reflects on the fragility, vulnerability and yet the beauty and strength of this timeless human condition, noting that one of the most mystifying aspects of aging is that one’s presence is diminished within the general public, often to the point of invisibility. The final body of work consists of large (3' x 4.5') drawings using photographs of Wilson-Hammond's shadow in the landscape. These are then digitally manipulated, printed on semi-transparent mylar with the resulting image then worked with coloured pencil.
