Following the RI Exhibition at Horshan Museum and Art Gallery in 2017, Harry Price RI was offered a solo exhibition by curator Jeremy Knight, opening on 24 March until 25 May 2018.
‘Harry Price RI: Reflected’, Horsham Museum & Art Gallery, 9 Causeway, Horsham, RH12 1HE, open Monday to Saturday 10am – 5pm
Amazingly complex but also beautiful, Harry Price’s paintings capture the distortions and reflections caught when looking out at a scene through glass. We can see through these distortions to the scene beyond and do not lose the strange beauty of the reflections, which would be flattened in another medium, such as photography.
Harry’s paintings also explore reflections on water and capture its magical and dynamic reflective power. The paintings have an emphasis on light effects and surface translucency. The distortions and reflected images in glass and mirrors often create tensions with the flat surface of the paper itself and find expression in the natural sparkle and surface sheen of the watercolours.
Harry’s painting, as much as possible, tends to be done directly from the subject but the cityscapes have to be developed in the studio using many return visits, colour notations, photographs and sketches as a basis for information.
Meet the artist: Meet Harry Price on Saturday 24 March 11am – 3pm to discuss his work in person. Free admission.
