HEMPHILL is pleased to share that Tanya Marcuse's exhibition, Laws of Nature, has been reviewed by Stacy J. Platt for Hyperallergic.  The exhibition is on view at the Denver Botanical Gardens through March 31, 2024.

DENVER — “Til we be roten, kan we nat be rype?”

This utterance from the Reeve in Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales (c. 1400) is most often re-translated as “Until we are rotten, we cannot be ripe.” The quote is apt to Tanya Marcuse’s photography, as seen in Laws of Nature, on display at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Inspired by various imaginings of what the untended paradise of Eden became in a Postlapsarian world, the exhibition consists of a video and 11 photographs, eight of which are mural-sized, eye-popping prints of immersive breadth and detail.

Truth in Photography

HEMPHILL is pleased to share an interview with Tanya Marcuse conducted by Truth in Photography. Please find an excerpt below.

Truth in Photography: When you're making photographs, what are you trying to do? What's your goal? What do you look for?

Marcuse: In my recent projects giving the viewer an immersive sense of wonder is paramount. My goal is for the pieces to work as allover compositions from afar, but also as luscious still-lives when drawn in close. I want to invite a viewer into the world in the photograph where they can have their own passage between belief and doubt –a seduction side by side with skepticism about that relationship between the constructed and the natural. However fabled, the scene is still real and factual, presented across the picture plane –like a platter– to the viewer.

As Galleries Return to Normal, One Group Show Thinks Big

As Galleries Return to Normal, One Group Show Thinks Big

For OPEN on K, Hemphill in Washington D.C. asked artists to bring their biggest ideas.

Hyperallergic

For Open on K, Hemphill asked artists to bring their biggest ideas. That’s a promising gallery provocation for this moment of return to not-quite-normalcy. Rush Baker appears to have found urgent inspiration in the Black Lives Matter protests for racial justice in the summer of 2020, but his paintings also point indirectly to the inchoate rage of the January 6 insurrection, with which the United States has yet to reckon. Many other artists — and many of the rest of us — spent months looking inward. Stepping back into the gallery after so many months of not seeing or showing or socializing marks an important moment, one in which we may see what’s changed.
