Stuart Hamilton: Earthly Meditations includes over 50 works made during the late artist’s 10-year history at the Center. Earthly details taken out of context – stones, sticks, and bone fragments – are arranged in geometric patterns reflecting a sense of order in a meditative process that carefully considers the natural world. This juxtaposition – of the simple, small, and oft disregarded – against the visual complexity of land formations in rhythmic topographic line, invites an alternative consideration and appreciation. As the artist remarked on his practice, “I’ve chosen to focus on the beauty of the small and unspectacular from the natural world around me.”

Stuart Hamilton was born in Manchester, England in 1950 and relocated to California in 1982, where he continued his art and teaching practice. Hamilton took graduate art courses from California State University, Long Beach and later received a Masters of Fine Art from Claremont Graduate University in 1984. His works are included in both US and UK collections, and have shown throughout California. Hamilton was an adjunct art professor at Coastline Community College, Westwood College, and Art Institute of California, among others. He passed at the age of 70 in February of 2021, and will be missed among the AGCC community.
