[Online Exhibition] Claire Whitehurst: Mississippi Shade

Steve Turner is pleased to present Mississippi Shade, a solo online exhibition by Jackson, Mississippi-based Claire Whitehurst that features new colorful paintings on paper which consist of imprecise concentric circles, intersecting biomorphic forms and cilia-like lines. Though her compositions might at first appear to be non-representational, they actually relate to nature and science. As someone who has lived most of her life in the American South, Whitehurst is especially motivated to convey the land’s internal psychology – the mystical more than the visible, feelings more than thoughts and sensations more than images.

Claire Whitehurst (born 1991, Baton Rouge, Louisiana) earned an MFA at the University of Iowa (2020) after earning a BFA at the University of Mississippi (2015). She has had solo exhibitions in New Orleans, Iowa City and Oxford, Mississippi. Mississippi Shade is Whitehurst’’s first exhibition with Steve Turner.
