Marcelino Gonçalves: "New Paintings"

April 7, 2005—May 14, 2005 | Reception Thursday, Apr. 7th, 6-8PM

James Harris Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Marcelino Gonçalves. Inspired by a 1970s brochure of a summer boy’s camp, Goncalves has created exquisitely subtle paintings of poignant moments and places seen through the lens of the male gaze. The eight pictorial paintings are lyrical and intimate and celebrate the beauty and craft of painting. The artist situates his open narratives in lushly painted verdant landscapes and provides an idyllic escape for the quiet desperation of today’s world.
