OVER THE LAST few years, Tom Hammick has made a name for himself as a painter of endless horizons and big, empty landscapes that hover on the edge of abstraction. His new exhibition marks a change in scale and subject, with his attention now fixed on the minutiae of the world around him. His method, though, is just the same and shows that he's still a subtle painter with a gentle, sophisticated touch.

Eagle Gallery, 159 Farringdon Road, London EC1 (0171-833 2674) to 10 Oct

Hammick's work can also be seen this month at the Redfern Gallery in Cork Street (which is, incidentally, celebrating 75 years in the business - happy birthday to them) where they have a selection of his work as a print-maker (right), including Lido, a new set of 21 etchings made to accompany poems by Maureen Duffy.
