The newest artist at Sorelle is April Hammock, a Connecticut-based abstract painter, whose work is comprised of brilliant colors and frenzied clusters of organic shapes and brush strokes, seemingly tangled in one another.
At the age of four, April and her family moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, and she went on to receive her MFA in Painting and Drawing from Louisiana State University. The unique, rich artistic culture of New Orleans along with the beautiful landscapes were influential factors in April's pursuing a lifelong career as an artist.
April is a member of Baton Rouge Gallery, Silvermine Art Guild in New Canaan, CT, and an Art File Member of the Painting Center in New York City. Her works have been exhibited internationally, nationally and throughout her home state of Louisiana.
“Years ago, I began as a realist landscape painter," April says of her artwork. "I dabbled with figure painting as well. Over the years, my work became increasingly abstract, and I was improvising from imagery. Now, I work directly from my imagination, sometimes with no idea how I will begin. Non-objective work challenges me - it’s like writing a story, putting the setting and plot together as I go along, arbitrarily exploring how it will end... like swimming in the ocean at night not quite knowing where it will lead.”
