Paul Harris

Paul Harris has done a set of lithographs with metallic paper inserts glued before printing, with the printing upon both the page and its metallic patch. Rain is printed on vinyl with a brocade pattern for the wall and the raincoat hanging surrounded by the brocade wall, is yellow. One Morning in Munich is brocade with a flat violet tint as the relater. Girl on Beach has three variations of surface, a drawing-textured umbrella part, a flat blue beach part, and a spectral yellow-green-red sky part. There is also a small part of the girl—or is that she? And since we are looking up into the umbrella the artist must have been on the beach beside the girl. Nice trip. These are at the William Sawyer Gallery.
