From December 1-29, 2017, New City Arts, supported by UVA Arts & the Office of the Provost & the Vice Provost for the Arts, presents Transient Places, a series of new paintings by Kirsten Hemrich.
Kirsten's work is very much concerned with the ephemeral nature of time and memory. She sees painting as a way to process certain moments and periods of her life. Using textual fragments, icons, and the emotional language of color, she creates abstract landscapes that speak to her personal experiences. Transient Places is an attempt to explore the fleeting chaos of the everyday.
