Michelle Hamer

Michelle Hamer maps contemporary social beliefs, ideals, fears and aspirations through text and urban environments. Familiar and often ironic, the works capture in-between moments that characterise everyday life. The boundaries and barriers that Hamer explores oscillate between fast and slow; past and present and become markers of rarely captured but revealing moments in time. Her hand-stitched and drawn works occupy a space between 2D and 3D and are based on both ‘found’ text and her own photographs – predominantly by eye.
