Heather Hutchison: “Forever Changes” Opens
at Alfstad& Contemporary

OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION: Feb 8, 5:30 – 8:00pm
SARASOTA, FL, January 29, 2018 – Alfstad& Contemporary is pleased to
announce an exhibition of works by Heather Hutchison spanning the past
decade. The exhibit, “Forever Changes,” opens February 8, 2018, and runs
through March 10.
The exhibition highlights Hutchison’s trademark style, which NY Arts Magazine
described as being "more akin to the simplified beauty of James Turrell than the
stark face of minimalism." The comparison is important, especially for anyone
who has only experienced her art in reproductions. The flatness of photographs
creates an illusion of pristineness in her work, which is far from accurate.
Deep, uncomplicated, frames of birch plywood—with visible grain and repeating
striations—mount thin sheets of Plexiglas. Sparingly masked in duck tape with
surfaces coated in beeswax, the constructions are suggestive, from a distance,
of seascapes reflecting on jalousie windows, common in mid-20th-century
homes throughout the Deep South.
When viewers move closer to the artwork, they notice non-uniformed layering of
pigments that extends past the picture plane, the flawed tear marks registered
in the edges of the standard household tapes. Upon closer inspection still, their
attention shifts again, this time to the saturation of Hutchison's colors, now
glowing, inviting them to look, not at the artwork, but through it.
Discussing her work, Hutchison often refers to natural disasters as inspiration.
Acknowledging the beauty, not just the storm, her work inspires a feeling of the
sublime that arises from an intimate engagement with nature. This Romantic
notion, as well as Hutchison's aesthetics, relates closely to 19th-Century
American artists, such as the luminist John Frederick Kensett, who shifted the
visual concern of landscape paintings to an interest in quietism, depicting a
poetic, tranquil experience of nature.
Born in Philomath, Oregon, Hutchison currently works and resides in upstate
New York. She has exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, Montclair Art Museum,
the Smithsonian, the Knoxville Museum of Art, and the 44th Biennial Exhibition
of American Painting at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
