Fiona Hamilton’s work explores the ecological sublime and an appreciation of the majesty of nature.
She works with detailed etching, drypoint and chine collé to draw the viewer into an ethereal landscape that has an impact on our sense of place in relation to the natural world. Working in black and white with natural tones of chine collé to introduce warmth to the stark palette, she works from sketches, photographs, notes and memory to create her prints.
This current series of prints considers how we view the contemporary sublime landscape and how easy it can be to experience when we take the time to look. We often don’t have to travel far: parks in cities, the coastline and stars in the night sky.
Hamilton is currently studying MA Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking at The University of the West of England and graduated from Canterbury with a BA in Fine Art in 2002.
Her work is held in many private collections.
