About the Work
"Interesting to see the humble beginnings of what would be a tour de force in the New Zealand art scene throughout the 80’s, 90’s and beyond. This is a fine early example of what was to come in the strange perspectives, anthropomorphic characters and wry humour featured throughout many of Hammond’s works."
