Stephanie Rudig, Washington City Paper

"This isn’t just a Color School roundup, however: The show includes artists deploying color to completely different ends, like the trippy pattern-based work of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi, as well as some varying landscape photography artists like Anne Rowland and William Christenberry."

In the galleries: Remapping the boundaries of drawing

March 3, 2017

Mark Jenkins, The Washington Post

"The third paradise the D.C. artist seeks is one in which nature, technology and humanity all flourish. She evokes this in pictures that suggest both organic and electronic systems, or by juxtaposing black-and-white photos with areas of pure color."

Abstracting the Data of the Natural World with Colorful Geometries

Claire Voon, Hyperallergic

"Julie Wolfe tries to make sense of the natural world by gathering and categorizing all kinds of sights and objects that offer no scientific information but inspire search for meaning, like puzzles."

"As a painter, Julie Wolfe doesn’t rely on any single visual system. Light and color are abundant in “Language of the Birds,” Wolfe’s solo show at Hemphill Fine Arts, her third, but those qualities are sometimes all that carries over from one work to the next. If Wolfe were a bird, she would be a hummingbird, moving from flower to flower in a way that looks frenetic but betrays precision."

Artist’s colorful ‘science project’ is a commentary on world’s water supply

December 2, 2015

Mark Jenkins, The Washington Post

"Housed in some 500 glass bottles stacked on metal shelves, the water, sediment and vegetation samples on display in the window of 1700 L St. NW look like a science project. But the contents of the jars, illuminated from behind, also glow with vivid reds, purples and blues, resembling a color-field painting that has been disassembled and liquefied."

A quartet of gallery summer group shows

Mark Jenkins, The Washington Post

"If the personal is political, these grandiose, dysfunctional structures are calling artist-citizens to take to the streets (or, more likely, cul-de-sacs)."

Matthew Smith, Washington City Paper

"The show focuses on artistic civic engagement—artists that are out of their studios and walking the streets. Mostly culled from the gallery’s stable of artists, 'Artist-Citizen' presents works that speak through the city itself."

Mark Jenkins, The Washington Post

"For millennia, pigments were derived directly from plants, metals and gems. More recently, synthetic dyes were developed, and human-made contaminants began discoloring the natural world. These are among the motifs of 'Rewilding,' Julie Wolfe’s show at Hemphill Fine Arts."

Kriston Capps, Washington City Paper

"'Rewilding,' a solo show by Julie Wolfe at Hemphill Fine Arts, gestures at an ambivalent state between nature and civilization: reclamation, either in terms of preservation or, perhaps, something darker and more apocalyptic.

Gallery opening of the week: ‘Julie Wolfe: Rewilding’

March 21, 2013

Michael O'Sullivan, The Washington Post

"With this title, the Washington-based painter of nature-themed abstraction questions our disconnection with nature, inviting us to reevaluate our place in it."
