ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Whirled is part of artist Bill Hoppe's series of six paintings created after moving to New York City. Energetic movement and patterns characterize the abstract composition. Circular forms repeat, overlap, and interact. He describes these pieces as "a visual record of my assimilation of aspects of life in New York with long established attitudes gained through the past sixteen years in the Northwest."
This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Pierce College.
