The Language of Hands: New Portraits by T Branson

6.1.24 to 8.24.24

Since early childhood T Branson has held a fascination (bordering on obsession) with hands; their unique form, expressiveness and individuality. Growing up in a home rich in culture and the arts, she watched her talented, professional artist mother skillfully transfer her creativity onto canvas.

“Hands tell stories, just like the eyes do, or the lines in a face. And there’s something about hands that touches everybody, reaches everyone. They touch people in a place that doesn’t get accessed very often. My works are an attempt at memorializing working hands, common hands, overlooked hands - in a lasting, and I hope in a moving image.”

Starting in the early 00’s, T has drawn and created a collection of portraits - all of them pairs of hands. Some of them are from photographs she has seen in various publications or other sources, but most are the hands of people she knows well, or who made an impression on her during chance encounters.
