Roby Hammond - Artist's Bio
Roby Hammond - is a Visual Artist, born in the United Kingdom in 1968.
Roby Hammond’s work employs iconography, the “sign” process and today’s interfaces for content. His mediums and materials are line-art, 3d modeling, computer cut glass, cast aluminum and polished steel. His message is Spirit, Thrill and Innocence. The compound result are translated into heavy, wall-hung, relief sculptures.
A signaling of “affirmation” found in the broad use of smiling faces enrolls sentiment as a device.
Spirit and zeal are ignited by the movement created by the body of energetic line-art and reflections created by the deliberate use of polished mirror surfaces.
Process and media
The process of creation also makes its way into his aesthetics removing the artist’s hand - in a process of steps that sees line art transferred into 3D computer artwork - then large-scale 3d models are printed - from which a casting is produced - which is then mirror-polished and then painted by hand. A process that takes one or two years to see completion.
Roby Hammond’s works have been shown in exhibitions in the USA, England and UAE.
