This show, Harpe’s first solo exhibition and the largest collection of work he has shown, will feature over 14 photographs, showcasing three distinct bodies of work.
“I have always seen the world as a collection of beautiful details...some cleverly hidden, others hiding in plain sight,” explains Harpe. “The body of work presented in Details, Details, Details is a manifestation of this vision.”
David latest body of work, Water Drops, features flowing streams of water photographed in freefall to create vivid abstract imagery. By exploiting the unique optical properties of water with a variety of techniques, David creates images that are both dynamic and enigmatic. The images are presented as large-scale prints, some up to five feet tall. The large presentation destroys the concept of scale, giving the work an enticingly familiar yet foreign presence.
The second body of work is a selection from, “Steele Bastille,” a series of abstract images of building faces in
The third body of work is a series of detail photographs from the book Stephen Rolfe Powell: Glassmaker. This is the first public viewing of these large-format prints. The Museum is concurrently showing a retrospective exhibition of Stephen Powell’s work in Master Makers: Stephen Rolfe Powell, which will remain on display through February 2, 2008.
Several pieces from the show will be available for sale, with prices between $300 and $2,500.
