Harman Projects will open its doors to A Silent Way, a solo exhibition by Toronto-based artist Chris Austin. This will be the artist’s first solo presentation with the gallery.
Chris Austin paints surreal landscapes where marine life exists hovering above ground. These formerly sea dwelling animals, no longer relegated to the ocean, float freely through a new and unknown world filled with man-made infrastructure. Whether cautiously exploring on their own, or interacting peacefully with a mysterious raincoat clad child, the creatures appear to move silently and without resistance through their surroundings.
Harman Projects will open its doors to Jeremy Fish: Drawing Conclusions, a solo exhibition of over 50 black and white drawings.
“This is my favorite medium, and this will be my first show made up entirely of these stark high contrast drawings. I began the work in December 2021, and the themes range from the subjects of love, betrayal, Zodiac signs, hands and feet, hearts and skulls, dead rappers, and my beloved cat Mrs. Brown,” the artist elaborates.
The artist will be in attendance and signing copies of his new book Forever Ever After at an Opening Reception on Saturday, July 30th from 6-8pm at Harman Projects, 210 Rivington Street, NYC.
