ABOUT THE ARTIST

Hemphill’s work is biographical in one form or another, either himself or his family history. No social commentary is intended. He has gravitated for some time now to the wide variety of expression he finds possible through objects that others may not find useful anymore. He also finds materials from any other source that might offer what he needs to complete a piece, such as hardware stores. He takes difficult subject matter and tries to simplify it in a way that communicates to others.

 

 

“All methods are sacred if they are internally necessary. All methods are sins if they are not justified by internal necessity.”

– Kandinsky
