Through large-scale paintings and installation, Pumphrey’s work explores the tension between calm and chaos. With turbulent brushstrokes and the suggestion of imagery or reference of space, her work examines the repeated process of settling into a place or moment, making it your own, and finding comfort — only to have the situation change. This two-part exhibition, hosted in conjunction with the Athenaeum in Alexandria, VA, explores the anxiety, excitement, panic, and even monotony that comes from just five more minutes. Calm shifts to chaos and seconds fly by. Time drags on and you push further into the unknown. Five more minutes. Stay here for just five more minutes. You have five more minutes. You still have five more minutes. Wait, just five more minutes. In five more minutes. Please, just five more minutes. Only five more minutes. Five more minutes.
