Hang Tough Contemporary are delighted to announce their next collaboration, a solo show of new paintings titled ‘??????? ??? ????? ??? ???’ by German born, Lisbon based painter Delia Hamer.

Hamer studied Painting at the renowned Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan 2014, and holds a Masters Degree in illustration at the University of the Arts London 2016. After completing her studies, Hamer worked in the fashion industry and in late 2018, she decided to move to Lisbon in order to pursue her lifelong passion; becoming a full time artist.

‘??????? ??? ????? ??? ???’, ?????? ?????????
Ever since Helios’s chariot started rising in the East and galloping across the sky to set in the West, life, our human lives, have been divided into light and darkness. Duality was introduced into our world on day one, when the ominous words “let there be light!” were spoken. Two worlds formed: one drenched in light, were virtues blossomed and one oneiric world, where Apollo’s light could not penetrate and Dionysus dwelled in the shadows. To be said plainly: Good and evil have been part of our world since the beginning of times and our free will to choose between one or the other is what constitutes the cornerstone of our human condition.
This is what this body of work is about. These paintings have a bitter sweet cadence to them, on one side you can sense the eviscerating experience of shining a light onto what we have carefully hidden but on the other hand there is the strong reassuring feeling that you are not alone in this, because truly… There is nothing new under the sun.

We will be introducing Delia Hamer and her incredible work over the next few days and a preview of Hamer’s paintings will be shared with mailing list subscribers before the exhibition launch.
