Description: William Hemmerling (American/Louisiana, 1943-2009), "Sweet Olive: Look Mama, This Wood Has a Hole in It", mixed media on wood, 21 1/2 in. x 33 1/4 in., unframed. Note: William Hemmerling, born in Chicago, began his painting career in 2002 in Ponchatoula, LA. Hemmerling was a self-taught artist utilizing various mixed media, specifically house paint and found objects. His main subject matter dealt with the daily activities of rural African-Americans and Southern folk culture, incorporating many different themes. The work offered here combines these characteristics in a humorous composition emphasizing the spontaneous nature of found wood and its natural inconsistencies. The artist was known for using his medium as inspiration, and this series featuring holes as a compositional tool interacting with his figures was completed specifically for Jazz Fest (as inscribed en verso).
