Thursday, June 10: Mary Early Opening @ Hemphill Fine Arts

Hemphill Fine Arts presents

Mary Early: Sculpture

Mary Early is not cool. She may be hip, intellectual, authoritative; but she, or [we] should say her artwork, is not cool. At a glance her installations may appear to be extensions of certain late modernist sculptural strategies with their presumption of objectivity, detachment and cool. It would be correct to identify minimalism, serial art, and other absolutist modernist aesthetics as the foil against which to interpret her work. But to stop there is to miss the work’s ambitious content–content that is personal, expressive and hot as opposed to cool.”
