over certain undecidedness these heartstring intimations is the culmination of a two-year-long abstracted cycle of textured conversation, internal eye contact, and endless playlist-making. Hemingway’s work is based in process-oriented reflections on habitual behavior, manifestation of sentiment, and sense of self. Her paintings draw inspiration from the ways in which we approach and avoid our internal and external routines – how degrees of our subconscious considerations affect how we extend ourselves to others. Individual auditory preferences of different colliding souls have carved a space for her in a language of empathetic abstraction – attempting to elaborate the curious beauty and pain of awareness; confront memory; seek out a more compassionate existence.
over certain undecidedness these heartstring intimations is an ongoing attempt to grasp the cadences of the deeply-embedded idiosyncrasies that both distinguish us as individuals and irrevocably link us to one another – a collection of affectionate guesses.
