Founded by Friederike Hamann and Colin Sullivan-Stevens, Field is a Portland based company that focuses on custom designed wallpaintings, object design and print work.
Field creates monthly installations at their gallery space on 74 India Street, where visitors can see the work during First Friday openings, special hours on the weekends and by appointment.
Their shows display an array of creative applications that range from painted walls and custom-made furniture to drawings and prints, sculptures and animation film screenings. Both Colin and Friederike enjoy exploring their creativity and ideas through different media and experimentation in their work.
Inspired by their time outdoors, where they gather and collect impressions of the Maine habitat, they try to recreate an atmosphere inside the gallery that distills the seasonal, botanical or geographical characteristics of the moment—thus intending to connect an interior space to a larger ecological image and diffusing the boundaries between architectural spaces and the outdoors.
Friederike Hamann is a German born artist. She graduated from RISD in 2000 and has been living and working in Maine since 2004.
Colin Sullivan-Stevens is born and raised in Freeport, Maine. He graduated from RISD in 2001. His work has been exhibited in several galleries across Maine.
