“THE ABSENCE OF…” features a captivating mix of oil on canvas, works on paper, and paint on found materials by Tex Hammond, curated by Carmen Acosta.

Hammond, is constantly exploring new techniques and expanding the horizons of figurative art. His ability to infuse contemporary elements into classic techniques sets him apart and allows him to create a style that is uniquely his own.

The exhibition showcases many works on paper that are fully realized studies produced from Hammond's almost obsessive sketching, imbuing the pieces with a raw and intuitive energy.

Artist ( Description ): 

At just 16 years old, Tex Hammond is already deeply embedded in the art world, a feat that speaks to his artistic prowess, incredible work ethic, and inherent talent. Born Jefferson Texas Hammond on January 31, 2007 in Los Angeles, California, he deftly incorporates the pop culture interests synonymous with youth into each and every one of his pieces. Using abstract techniques and unconventional surfaces, he is taking a definitive step towards modernizing classic genres, simultaneously giving “trash” a second, eco-conscious life and beauty. His accomplishments are impressive–regardless of his age which only emphasizes this further–including three solo shows, charitable donations to The Tree Academy for the Creative Arts in West Hollywood, Miles 4 Migrants, and PS ARTS, creating LA’s first ever drive-thru art show, being the youngest ever exhibitor at the LA Art Show two years in a row with sold out shows, featured work in HBO’s The Hype, and a feature in the LA Times. Even amongst a backdrop of immense, established talent, Tex stands out.
