Heather Day: Keep Still
May 5 – May 26, 2018
Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Keep Still, a solo show of new works by Heather Day.
The California-based artist creates abstract paintings that are informed by sensory interpretations. Shifting between traveling and working in her studio, Day creates pieces that represent both profound and mundane situations. Her encompassing murals, spacious canvas paintings and intimate drawings read like handwriting—from one side to another.
The artist’s lexicon of marks is an evolving language; symbols meant to bridge the thoughts between what is known and how it is felt. Keep Still is a reflection on this process. Flooded acrylic pigment, intentionally rakish graphite marks, and torn paper – these new works are a study of the relationships found through consequential shifts in perspective.
Day writes, “There’s a rhythm. A deep breath that causes the paint to stray from the destined route. Using the limitations of the body, there’s an emotional blur of concrete moments that take up space and time.”
Please join us for Keep Still, opening Saturday, May 5 with an evening reception from 6pm – 9pm where the artist will be in attendance. In collaboration with Juxtapoz Magazine, the gallery will host an artist talk on Tuesday, May 22 at 7:30 pm. The exhibition will be on view through May 26.
