16 Nov New work by Jeff Hantman
(November 1st-December 14th)
Jeff Hantman received a BFA in printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1995 and has been living and working in the Bay Area for 20 years. His studio is packed full of weathered objects, plywood scraps, 2×4’s, and broken furniture that he found on the street. In his studio he disassembles these collected items and reconfigures them into large sculptures that resemble objects that may or may not be obsolete. He combines woodworking, printmaking and painting to create his sculptures.
Over the years my work transitioned from flat works on paper, to flat works on wood, curved sculptures and now free-standing sculptures. I want to achieve something new with each piece, and ‘Lever’ and ‘BBQ2’ are two examples of this. These pieces are the result of a continued interest (and struggle) to work with plywood in an unconventional way. The goal was to combine printmaking and woodworking to create sculptures that are curved and dimensional. This continued interest in materials and process inform each new piece in my studio
