With his newest group of paintings, Tim Harriss takes machine-aided abstraction to an extreme level. His interest in the Hockney-Falco thesis regarding the use of lenses to create optical distortion has long been at the root of a desire to create contemporary paintings. He references the history of painting, transforming, through current technology, known works into something entirely novel. His intent is to celebrate painterly traditions, rich colors and textures of the past, while unabashedly warping the imagery to the point of abstraction. Opening reception 7-9pm October 19; exhibit runs October 17 through November 13 at Eric Schindler Gallery, 2305 East Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23824. (804) 644-5005.
