Grace Hammond is a mixed media artist from Spartanburg, South Carolina.
As a recent Studio Art and Art History graduate from Wofford College, her work was shaped by the pandemic.
While planning her senior art exhibition she was led to contemplate what she had missed most during the
pandemic and that was live music.
She states, “As someone who doesn’t go a day without listening to
music or a few months without going to some form of concert, I never realized how much I missed that
environment. There is no better feeling than being surrounded by others dancing and enjoying their
favorite songs. I wanted to capture this fanatic experience and the liveliness of music in my work”.
Heavily influenced by fashion and repurposed items, Grace uses a variety of materials to create her
artwork, every piece is unique and specifically chosen for each composition.
