Stefany Hemming | Holding Pattern



August 24-September 28, 2013
Opening Reception: September 7th, 6-9 pm

Tinney Contemporary is pleased to present Holding Pattern- New Work by Stefany Hemming. Through her work Hemming explores painting as an obsessive, instinctive, physical practice: exposing the personal and universal relationship between chance and intention.

Hemming works within a strict set of formal parameters: one tool, one layer of paint and one continuous block of time. The color palette and subject are also limited. She has developed a reductive method of working that allows her to draw with paint, making fluid lines in sweeping strokes, at any width or speed. Within these confines, intuitive, animal-like mark-making and form-building occur. Spontaneous movement and raw action inform aesthetic balance and formality. Awkward, elegant, clumsy, confident, all strokes are left in their original state and all add equally to the reading of the completed work.

Through this frank and physical process, recurring concerns are revealed: vitality, stability, trust, loss, aging and lust. In Hemming's exploration, the work becomes a kind of documentation of the intangible; evidence of one block of time and the humanity that occupied it. 

Stefany Hemming lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia.
