“Jump, Twist, Flow…” Art Exhibition at HEMPHILL

July 14, 2023 - August 19, 2023

Magdalena Abakanowicz, Rush Baker IV, Willem de Looper, Thomas Downing, Shaunté Gates, Sam Gilliam, Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi, Wayson R. Jones and Lisa Scheer.

HEMPHILL is pleased to announce the exhibition Jump, Twist, Flow… opening on Friday, July 14, 2023, with a Summer Open House on Saturday, July 15, 2023 from 12-5 pm. The exhibition will remain on view through August 19, 2023.

Jump, Twist, Flow… invites summer through vivid colors and dramatic pieces that radiate from the walls.  As you venture into the exhibition, deep, eye catching tones from Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi’s tile triptych, Untitled, draw you closer to intricate Tazhib designs which overlay paint pours.  Weaving through the gallery, physically engaging pieces erupt forward into your line of sight.  Sam Gilliam’s Mirrors, utilizes acrylic paint in a unique fashion, thick smears of color coating the surface with shifting metal armatures tilting forward.  Lisa Scheer’s sturdy and angular sculpture, Leviathan looms from the wall, also unique, appearing weightless and substantial simultaneously.  With sculptures and paintings bursting from the walls, jutting into the room and rich colors enticing closer inspection, Jump, Twist, Flow… urges the viewer to wade, swirl, and bob through the gallery, like a child in a swimming pool.
