Tomi Hamel’s painting

Tomi Hamel is a painter who lives in Canada, “her art practice draws from personal experiences and outward observations to create thematic bodies of work that reflect on and interpret the psychological unease characteristic of our age.” (From her website)

Her paintings are story-riched, and her use of satire and humor together successfully engaged viewers. Using humor in art help viewers develop a new sense of awareness while experiencing joy. It reminds me of how Speculative everything introduced humor, viewers can be influenced in a more constructive way by appealing to the imagination and can lead viewers in passive acceptance.
