Charles Hinman, Sails, 1965, Acrylic on shaped canvas, 34 x 36 x 6 1/2 inches,
The Kreeger Museum.
Charles Hinman: Structures, 1965–2014 is the first exhibition in Washington to explore the work of Charles Hinman, an abstract painter who pioneered three-dimensional, shaped canvases during the 1960s. Hinman is best known for his compositions that expand the conventional space of painting and emerge from the wall in a collection of hand-built and multi-colored planes. Guest curated by Danielle O’Steen, the exhibition offers a look at 50 years of the artist’s innovative work, from his monumental and monochromatic paintings to his rarely-exhibited experimental textiles and prints and drawings.
