Hinman has been painting hard-edged shaped abstract canvases for over half a century. Hinman’s current works; striking, hard-edged, three dimensional canvases are still somewhere between painting and sculpture. They hold their own, acting as reflectors of color, prisms of sorts, although made solely of canvas, wood and paint. They play with light, hue, shape, with what is actually there and what is merely optical illusion.
