The Gallery at R&F - Julie Hedrick: Rome
The paintings of Kingston artist, Julie Hedrick, are deceptive. Hedrick paints atmospheric auras that, at first glance, appear to be very simple, minimal fields of color. But variations in tone and her use of impastos give the work a complex, veiled, glowing appearance, where colors and light appear to be shifting, vibrating and transforming within the picture space. Light emanates from the depth of Hedrick’s paintings, pulling the viewer in and surrounding them with the energy of a spiritual place. The artist reminds us of our connection with the universe and our inner selves by inviting viewers to slow down, reflect, and re-energize. For her first show at the Gallery at R&F, Hedrick has created a new series of frescoes inspired by Rome.
The Gallery at R&F in Kingston promotes the various contemporary uses of oil paint and encaustic. The Gallery space is housed within the factory of R&F Handmade Paints, which is one of the few manufacturers of encaustic paint in the world. Located at 84 Ten Broeck Ave, in midtown Kingston, NY gallery hours are Monday - Saturday, 10am - 5pm. For further information, call (845) 331-3112 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q&A with Featured Artist Robin Denevan and Gallery Director Laura Moriarty
LM: When did you first realize that rivers were a source of inspiration for you?
RD: I spent some time on the Tuichi River in the Bolivian Amazon shortly after graduating from Art School. Sketching while drifting through the jungle forced me to draw more spontaneously. The rhythm of the passing shoreline resulted in my first ‘panoramic’ series where the imagery was continuous and repetitive. This was a departure from my illustrative and formal background. Rivers have since been a source of inspiration and escape.
