Ant Hamlyn

1993, Northampton (United Kingdom)

Working across a pollination of hand made and digital fabrication processes, Ant Hamlyn’s works delve into our relationship and fluctuating enthusiasm towards contemporary life. His sculptures regularly have anthropomorphic elements and work with metaphor, technology and the interplay between hard and soft, to create moments of tactility and surprise through material and visual obscurity. Often creating relics from a recognizable yet parallel space.

Hamlyn’s conceptual framework is recently taken from plants, nostalgia, preservation and magic. With the exception of a number of larger kinetic installations, the majority of Hamlyn’s works are meticulously sewn by hand. This delicate interplay between materiality, scale and context are intrinsic to the simultaneous creation of mystery, familiarity and deception.

His works are held in private international collections. His studio is currently in South West London.

He studied Ba Fine Art at Liverpool Hope University (2012-15 ) and Ma fine art Chelsea College of Art (2016-17) after receiving the Cecil Lewis Sculpture Scholarship.
