Hemphill Artworks organized a summer group show titled “Jump, Twist, Flow … ” The selection features some of the gallery’s current artists, but most of the highlights are by painters and sculptors, primarily local, who emerged in the 1950s or ’60s.
All but one of the pieces hang on a wall, but many of them curve forcefully away from that surface. The show begins with a Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi triptych that contrasts mosaic-like patterns with watery areas. Equally aquatic, yet fully abstract, is Willem de Looper’s “Trough Blues,” which glows as if sunlight is penetrating its azure currents.
Jump, Twist, Flow... closes at HEMPHILL this Saturday, August 19, 2023.
