Emily Hammond’s work highlights the beauty in daily life. She also focuses on the universal ties that bind us to the Earth and to each other. Perception is the ultimate equalizer and can give us a window into the depths that lie below the surface of this staggeringly beautiful life.
This piece attempts to capture the movement of energy that animates all life. The path ever-changing before us – strands braiding and branching – departing and converging – reminding us that we are eternally held.
An intuitive study of the spaces between, Woven highlights the presence of the unseen that exists between objects. Often overlooked, the spaces between help us to view the objects themselves differently.
While often present in our daily live and frequently overlooked, upon deeper consideration, each flower in its many facets is like a universe upon itself.
Banded Chevron, from the “Cathedrals of Light” collection, which seeks to evoke the profound calm of the clouds that rise above us – at times sunlit and other storm darkened – each day. The chevron is an ancient symbol found across cultures that invokes protection and represented the dutiful service given freely by those who wore it.
Diamond Diptych, from the “Cathedrals of Light” collection depicting the beauty of clouded skies. This diptych includes interlocking panels of both darkened and sunlit skies, as well as a series of diamonds rising up through the clouds, with each jewel supporting the crown.
Winter Solstice Rising, from the “Cathedrals of Light” collection captures the specific sky on the day of the 2017 winter solstice. An important day, both historically and culturally, the shortest darkest day of last year still held so much light with delicate clouds chased by the wind until dusk.
Rising serves as reminder that the Truth of who we are has always lived within us. Even in our most trying moments we are not separate from that innate core. We are never alone. Never separate. We need only find our way back into our hearts in order to Remember.
