Whitespace presents Chaos and Currents at whitespec. Concurrently showing in the gallery an exhibition by Deanna Sirlin, Everything is Optional. In her first solo exhibition, Chaos and Currents, Julia Hill explores the processes of accumulation, attraction, and redistribution. Using salvaged materials and debris gathered from urban creek beds, Hill’s intricately composed sculptures forged from bits and pieces of debris suggest motion and forces, seen and unseen. This process allows Hill to explore her own role in the creation of patterns that contribute to the processes and forces that perpetuate our existence. From atoms sticking together and pulling apart, to swollen creeks, to the largest forces commanding the expanding universe, Julia Hill asks us to question everything.
Even with the stormy weather- all inclusive of lightning bolts and in some areas, hail- Julia’s solo exhibition opened its door in full merriment. With Julia’s successful pieces poignantly installed in WhiteSpec paired with her sweet disposition, the weather may have been a downer but the atmosphere could not be more celebratory. This exhibition is a must-see.
