Charlie Hewitt: New Work
Jim Kempner Fine Art
501 West 23rd Street, New York, NY 10011 US
Opening Reception: May 19th, 6-8pm
For Charlie Hewitt’s 13th solo exhibition with Jim Kempner Fine Art, we present a new body of work that includes large canvases, prints, light sculptures and drawings, all inspired by doodles Hewitt has unconsciously drawn on his daily calendar pages for years and years while conducting his daily business affairs. These pieces feel almost spring loaded, as pipes twist and time bombs threaten detonation, their elements about to burst from the walls.
What I like best about them is that they are funny. I think there is an element of humor that comes from my doodles. It is hard to find that in art, and it is a big part of what art is about, for me.-Charlie Hewitt
This exhibition will also include Hewitt’s Hopeful light sculpture and the works of art created around this piece – all the seeds for his inspiring Hopeful Project that is now expanding rapidly throughout the country.
Join us to celebrate Hewitt’s wonderful new work in our first post-pandemic opening on May 19th from 6-8pm.
