In Wildfires and Dreamfields, Julie Wolfe both physically and figuratively deconstructs her own book published in 2019 to superimpose images that probe the power of the subconscious at a new level of intensity and unrest. This investigation depends on the “double exposure” of screen printing to reveal vivid, uncanny vignettes recalling our wildest dreams and our strangest visions. Wolfe honors the surreal cinema of our subconscious as an endless source of intrigue as we attempt to adapt and understand our collective existence.

Julie Wolfe is a multimedia artist whose work visualizes the diffuse, the immaterial, and the invisible. Wolfe’s intuitive artistic process develops an emergent language of form, probing the depths of collective consciousness while engaging individual viewers uniquely and subjectively. Her practice approaches impermanence, uncertainty, and tension (formal, political, or interpersonal) as tools rather than obstacles.

A suite of five new prints inspired by Wildfires and Dreamfields will be on view along with the limited edition Artist Book at HEMPHILL starting October 21. In the main gallery, Sam Gilliam is on view until October 31, and Ryan Crotty on view through November 14.

HEMPHILL is open Tuesday – Saturday by advance appointment only. To schedule a private visit, please contact gallery@hemphillartworks.com or call 202-234-5601.
