Allusion & Analogue: Painting As Exploration
abrasiveMedia is hosting Allusion and Analogue, new work from Harry Whitver in an exhibition that debuts on February 3rd from 6-9 pm at Houston Station during the Arts & Music at Wedgewood / Houston. The show is free and open to the public, and is suitable for all ages.
Whitver’s paintings explore the atmospherics of geography, history, music and literature. His visual interpretations, sometimes alluding to events or themes, sometimes acting as analogues, reference the familiar and the obscure. What would “Mrs. Todd’s Shortcut” feel like? Is that really how Leonard Cohen’s “light gets in”? How far along was creation when God sat down with his lunchbox and Thermos on the third day? Whitver’s technique, using oils and linework on canvas, provides a graphic riff linking imagination, experience and memory.
