About my artwork
Patrick Earl Hammie (b. 1981, New Haven, Connecticut) is a painter best known for his monumental portraits that adopt body language and narrative to reinvent and remix ideal beauty and heroic nudity. Hammie characterizes his work as “an effort to reconcile inner duality, transcend typical masculine ideals and yield to new realities that require constant compromise and change.” His current work explores the tension between power and vulnerability and examines how male artists have historically represented themselves and the nude. Coming of age in a generation that is post-Civil Rights and post-Second Wave Feminism, he has situate himself in the discourse of contemporary art that questions constructions of identity, gender politics and (mis)conceptions of race.

Since 2007 Hammie has been featured in several solo and group exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad. Hammie maintains an active schedule of exhibitions, public lectures and speaking engagements at colleges and museums nationwide. He currently serves as assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and lives and works in Champaign and Chicago, IL.
