Fusion of Metalpoint with Paintings

The fusion of metalpoint and painting is a new series of conceptual contemporary portraiture by D. Lammie-Hanson of BIPOC as their authentic selves. 

 

As a woman who feels steeped in Romanticism, Lammie-Hanson embraces the 500+ year old technique of metalpoint that marries the creative aesthetics of the Renaissance with the contemporary visions of Afro-Futurism. The aesthetics and technique are as unforgiving as the people that I chose to portray are unapologetic.

 

Lammie-Hanson’s intention is to show the unique beauty of the dark skin that we are born in.
