This series of new works has a physicality that fuels the energy in a room even as they give impressions of place. The large size of the works are heavily layered paint on 4" deep canvases that read as sculpture. The confident use of color and assertive brushstrokes create a dynamic visual experience; Hoitsma really does achieve his goal to change the air in the room.

Curated by Odessa, Crooked Timber investigates the relationship between human beings and the Earth; deconstructing the paradoxes between self and place.

And in this way, the exhibition space serves as an open casket to what was, and a monument to the eternal.
