Jeffrey Hantman

Jeff Hantman creates three-dimensional mixed media works that combine photography, appropriated images and screen-printing on scrap plywood. The wood has been retrieved from local construction sites or collected from the side of the road. These salvaged sections of plywood are often covered with oil stains and weathered paint indicating age, neglect and the passage of time out in the elements. Jeff meticulously reassembles the cast-off plywood into constructions that suggest fragments of architectural structures. These elaborately curved plywood structures are layered with screen-printed imagery. The resulting works poetically suggest faded memories of a distant past. Jeff was an artist in residence last year at Djerassi. His work is also currently on view at the Barra Windows in Berkeley.
