Storm Tharp: "What Needs to Be Said" at The Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Sat, 09/14/2019
Storm Tharp, "Cadre," 2017; ink, fabric dye, spray paint, acrylic paint, and charcoal on paper; 126" x 214"

Storm Tharp is exhibiting at The Hallie Ford Museum of Art as a part of the Hallie Ford Fellows in Visual Arts exhibition, "What Needs to Be Said," curated by Diana Nawi. Of Storm's work, Diana Nawi writes, "... Storm Tharp's 'Cadre' (2017) contains a quality of pathos, communicated through dynamic gesture and bodies and visages that make visible sentiment and sensation. For Tharp, seriality yields both juxtaposition and cohesion. While a breadth of gestures is contained in this suite of thirty-six works on paper, ranging from total abstraction to clear figuration, from grinding black lines to washy inks, together they form an expressive, almost linguistic set of images that holds contradiction and grace side-by-side." ('What Needs to Be Said,' Diana Nawi, Hallie Ford Museum of Art, Willamette University, 2019, Page 17)

Congratulations, Storm, and thank you to The Ford Family Foundation for their generous support of Oregon Artists through the Hallie Ford Fellowship program!
