Richard Hamilton

Richard Hamilton (1922-2011) was a painter and collage artist.

Rosemarie Trockel (1952) is a contemporary artist who I decided to look at during this project due to her knitted works. Trockel created these works using a computerised knitting machine and are characterised by their formal contrast of patterns, taken from pattern books and women’s magazines, as well as iconic political and commercial motifs. 117 more words

Gerard Hemsworth (1945) is a contemporary artist who creates paintings that I have been looking at during this project.
