This event has ended.

Harriet Korman’s last solo exhibition of new work took place at the gallery in 2008. She has continued to focus on color and shape in new paintings that attain a decisive and brilliant clarity.
Basing the compositions on line drawings, Korman uses the location of the lines as boundaries between colors, and selects individual unblended pigments for the resulting shapes. She exposes each color’s intrinsic qualities of hue, brightness, transparency, and texture through the juxtaposition of related or contrasting colors and a deceptively casual paint application.
Diagonals that slice across the mostly four by five foot canvasses give rise to an interesting reverse symmetry; horizontals and verticals further divide wedges into triangles and polygons. In the end, Korman achieves a shifting dominance between whole and divided shapes through the purposeful selection and arrangement of color.
