“Robert Novel Paintings” at HEMPHILL
August 12, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until August 13, 2022
Robert Novel Paintings is now on display at HEMPHILL (434 K Street NW) through August 13, 2022.
Throughout the last decade, Robert Novel completed over one hundred and fifty paintings in a limited palette ranging from white to soft gray to black, often incorporating raw canvas or linen as a compositional element of the work. The nuance and rawness of the visible linen or canvas contrasts the flat application of pigment and the strength of the geometric forms. Novel’s reflection on geometric abstraction and the unfolding experimentation of a single variation from one painting to the next brings a deep feeling of calm, and the repetition of visual motifs becomes a performance.
The gallery is open for visitors 12PM – 5PM Tuesday – Saturday or by appointment.
