Five More Minutes, Baltimore artist Katie Pumphrey’s second solo exhibition at Susan Calloway Fine Arts, features all new work. Through large-scale paintings and installation, Pumphrey’s work explores the tension between calm and chaos. With turbulent brushstrokes and the suggestion of imagery or reference of space, her work examines the repeated process of settling into a place or moment, making it your own, and finding comfort — only to have the situation change.
This two-part exhibition, hosted in conjunction with the Athenaeum in Alexandria, VA, explores the anxiety, excitement, panic, and even monotony that comes from just five more minutes. Calm shifts to chaos and seconds fly by. Time drags on and you push further into the unknown. Five more minutes. Stay here for just five more minutes. You have five more minutes. You still have five more minutes. Wait, just five more minutes. In five more minutes. Please, just five more minutes. Only five more minutes. Five more minutes.
Katie Pumphrey has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art. She has participated in artist residencies at the Studios of Key West, Vermont Studio Center, Gallery Four, and the Creative Alliance. Pumphrey is also a long distance, open water swimmer — who swam the English Channel in 2015. This aspect of her life often influences and drives her work. Pumphrey lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland.
