Abstract

Harmony Hammond has spent decades making art in a range of styles, techniques, and drawing on multiple influences. One main influence could be her queer identity, which was established in the early 1970s. If this is the case, where is it evident? How did her personal life affect her artistic career? I propose that her sexual identity is directly related to the way she made art, and that the people she was associated with helped her explore this identity in her work.
