Abstract (English)

This catalogue consisting of a booklet and CD-ROM, provides comprehensive documentation of Hamilton’s Windows and Mirrors series of paintings based on digitally manipulated photographs of polished metal surfaces. Marzolf’s essay situates Hamilton’s work within the context of J. Randolph’s notion of “Technological Ethos,” D. Sirk’s melodramatic films and R. Smithson’s mirror works. Concepts of realism and abstraction are considered in relation to the artist’s use of “windows” and “mirrors” as metaphors for painterly, photographic and cinematic illusion. A brief text by Cran addresses the role of the frame and the gaze in the process of observation. Texts by J. Anderson and G. Beatty are included on the CD-ROM: Anderson focuses on the spatial characteristics of Hamilton’s paintings, while Beatty examines how the artist has incorporated digital technology into his practice. The CD-ROM also includes: biographical notes on the artist; documentation of the artist in his studio; a video-recorded interview with Hamilton by P. Hemingway; reproductions of the digital images used as source material; interactive panoramic views of the paintings installed in the Dunlop Art Gallery. The booklet includes: a list of works; brief biographical notes on Hamilton and Cran; 11 bibl. ref.
