November 1, 2012—November 30, 2012 | Reception Thursday, November 1st, 6-8PM
James Harris Gallery is pleased to announce Transference and Speculation, an exhibition of new paintings by Sarah Awad. This show marks the artist’s second solo exhibit at the gallery. Awad’s new body of work is distinguished by stunning color fields and subtle compositional arrangements that speak to a profound canon of painting, ranging from Classical sculpture to Modernist Abstraction. Drawing heavily from the history of art in both style and subject matter, these works recall the innovative imagery of artists like Rodin, de Chirico, and Matisse, while eliciting an especially contemporary perspective on painting.
