Artist + D. Lammie-Hanson

As an artist, I believe everyone has a story that we don't normally comprehend at first glance. I paint my subjects from the quietness of their soul. Most times it's a reflection of my own soul landing onto the material. I collect hundreds of images and as I create my textural backgrounds, I sort out what I'm going to bring forth. This process is intermittent and timely. It could take hours, days, months or even years for me to complete a painting based on mood, the image and the release within my mind and soul.

I have four series that I work on simultaneously and sometimes fusing two or three series together.

Most recent is the "Barna Black" series which originated in Barcelona, Spain while I attended an artist residency and it consists of drawing with a simple sliver of silver (also known as silverpoint) over a black background of charcoal and/or black chalk. The silver illuminates the bold statement of impression of afflictions and reflections of light on the skin.

"The One Eyed Tulips" consisting of the subject(s) having one eye and two lips. This series is based on the perception what the subject is versus the value of the truth of the subject's story.

"The Beauty Beyond the Brown Paper Bag Test" series is based on the African American historical symbolism of the utilization of the brown paper bag. It was used in the practice of skin color discrimination in the African-American communities in the deep southern states of the US especially in the state of Louisiana. The brown paper bag was use like an identification card to gain access to parties, some churches, some fraternities and sororities, nightclubs etc. If a person was darker than the brown paper bag that was placed at the entrance of the place or event then that person was denied access.

"The Transcedence" series is a series that is incorporating the value of the human soul growing and evolving into a higher being of magnificence. To know that there is a better consciousness of self.
