There's a little bit of a mystery to the seemingly simple works of Alfred Harris. The old question of "how'd he do that" has a very nice answer to it and I'm a big fan of the aesthetics of it. In the simplest of terms, he paints on paper, randomly cuts it up, repositions it to his liking on another support and then ties it all together with resin. My very first encounter with his work made me wonder if this was about language or calligraphy, but it's all about line and gesture. He's represented by Froelick Gallery and both images are from the 31 examples they have of his work. Visit His Web Site to see other works on paper, panel and canvas. You'll want to watch this You Tube video of his Exhibit "Drummer Hodge", from last year. Even though it's not the best interview in the world, if you stick with it, Alfred explains his oeuvre quite well. You'll enjoy hearing him explain the process that yields these medium and large sized, collaged works.
