Frederick Hammersley and the Scientific Method
New Mexico Museum of Art

Join Frederick Hammersley: To Paint without Thinking curator James Glisson, PhD and Joseph Traugott, PhD in a moderated conversation centering Frederick Hammersley. Hammersley alternated back and forth between freewheeling modernism and utilizing a kind of scientific methodology. Often he broke his painting process down into increments and within those increments let himself chose. Like a scientist, he realized that phenomena happen within an ecosystem but cannot be studied that way, rather the wholes must be broken into discrete parts.

Frederick Hammersley: To Paint without Thinking programing provided with support from the Frederick Hammersley Foundation and the Museum of New Mexico Foundation.
