This event runs until 26th May 2018, so hurry!
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 has previously exhibited at Horsham Museum as part of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours exhibition. It was clear during this show that his work warranted further display. Horsham Museum is therefore delighted to be able to hold a solo show of work by an artist who is undoubtedly at the top of his game.
