Hollis Hammonds: Worthless Matter

February 10-April 6


DAAP Galleries at the University of Cincinnati are pleased to present the solo exhibition of artist Hollis Hammonds titled Worthless Matter on view in DAAP Galleries Dorothy W. & C. Lawson Reed, Jr. Gallery.

Exploring consumerist culture through evidence of accumulation, hoarding and collecting; piles of buildings, chairs and trash permeate the works of Hollis Hammonds. Since her childhood, a seemingly endless stream of tornadoes, floods and hurricanes, have inspired her work, as drifts of rubble lay in their wake. Ranging from documentary studies of storms and storm damage to sculptural wall drawings of crashing waves, her works often illustrate imaginary piles of debris left after fictional, natural, and man-made disasters.

Worthless Matter spans several years of creative work dealing with memory, material consumption, waste, catastrophe and superficial loss.

Artist Reception: Thursday, February 13 from 5-7 pm
