Jamie Hamilton: Active Measures

  • The Bendix Building 1206 Maple Avenue #805 Los Angeles, CA, 90015 United States (map)

Jamie hamilton will host a viewing of an on going body of work entitled Active Measures which draws on raw surplus materials such as magnets, aluminum from the aerospace industry and dichroic glass from optical laboratories that have been machined into highly recursive and reflective biological-mechanical objects. 

Jamie Hamilton is a sculptor and high wire walker based in Los Angeles.  Drawing from a varied background in sport, music and building, Hamilton's interdisciplinary work arises from curiosity about the limits of the body, knowledge and materials. Building wood, concrete and steel structures for Judy Pfaff, working with Tom Joyce and Bruce Nauman, and as a fabricator has solidified a knowledge of material and working processes that informs his artwork. Described by ARTnews as a “free-wheeling modern-day Leonardo,” Hamilton makes an art of pursuing balance in precarious circumstances, evoking both mythic themes and contemporary dilemmas.
