Caroline Harman will also be showing at the NO MORE, NO LESS  exhibition at the Washington Art Association. The opening reception for this exhibition is March 8th from 4PM to 6PM. The show will run until April 5th. Among the works selected for this exhibition are her new paintings and some of the drawings which were featured at our  Drawing Conversations exhibition in 2012.That particular Field Projects Exhibition featured the drawings of Caroline Harman and Marc Chabot.(Stay tuned for his new website which will feature his own artwork). 

Caroline's drawing were later selected for the "Working It Out" exhibition at the Painting Center in NYC. That exhibition curated by  Mona Brody, Alyce Gottesman, Jo Ann Rothschild focused on drawings created in preparation for painting. I'm so looking forward to see the paintings that evolved from that body of work!!!!!


Caroline Harman - Drawing
Caroline Harman Artist's Statement


My work is an attempt to explore the baffling complexity of my own human experience as I relate to change and uncertainty. The drawings image a modern dreamscape in flux, where structures collapse and boundaries mutate, expand and contract. The tension of opposites is in continual play: creation and destruction, stasis and momentum, survival and extinction, the solid ground of now and the uncertainty of the future. As with dreams, the work echoes a familiar place, and is closely bound to emotional events that have been searched for and described through the unconscious. 
 
 Caroline Harman
The paintings move further away from definable space and its possibility of security by eliminating a sense of ground and releasing gravity’s hold on matter. The layering and partial veiling of forms, along with the inclusion of shifting scales and multiple vantage points, creates a kaleidoscope that fractures any narrative about permanence. Interactions occur with such frequency and density that only a part of what is happening can be perceived. With this type of alchemy, as with any creation mythology, when structures break down, the new forms do not come forth immediately. They emerge out of the chaos as a result of holding the tension of opposites. It is a space where everything previously held true has disintegrated and become ash. Gradually the remains re-form into deeper, more complex patterns, evolving into an eternal swoop of sensations and an unexpectedly beautiful psychic unity.

 For the NO MORE, NO LESS Exhibition I am putting in an order for NO MORE SNOW!!!!!!:)!
