From May 8 through May 11, 2014, Harlem bred, Brooklyn cultivated and New Orleans based autodidactic artist, D.Lammie-Hanson will present her painted mixed media series The One Eyed Tulips, A Conceptual Visual Dialogue, during Frieze week in New York City at the Contemporary Arts Fair, NYC l Chelsea located at 269 Eleventh Ave/2220 Twelfth Ave NYC. The series features the most recent compelling original works of the "One Eyed Tulips" which focuses on the message of the one eye's purpose as the window into the soul and the lusciousness of lips ready spill words that are kept silent. The series features repurposed materials such as leaves from plants and trees, petals from roses and tulips, vinyl banners, curtains, sheets and leftover latex paints. The leaves in particular have a sentimental (re)(re)purpose. For instance, when Lammie's mother, Bette, passed last year, Lammie took a plant from her funeral and continually embeds the leaves from the plant whole with the gesso when prepping paintings. She explains that "…the leaves become symbols of a rebirth of my mom's spirit. They add texture to the paintings which symbolize the difficulty of life. And out of that difficulty brings something beautiful." All works were created within the last four years and reflects the artist's past transient life that stemmed from forcibly leaving her beloved Brooklyn to the Atlanta area in GA to finally settling in her new hometown of New Orleans, LA.
This is the second time D. Lammie-Hanson is showing her work with the Contemporary Arts Fair, NYC, and the first time being in October 2013.
The One Eyed Tulips by D. Lammie-Hanson engages the viewer into an internal dialogue. There is a beauty of self that the subject of each painting is communicating to the viewer. It's a dialogue that almost every woman/man can identify with. Each person's dialogue is conceptually their own and unique.
