Zach Harris

Zach Harris  Belvedere Krimko Torso  2013  water based paint, wood and canvas  29" x 23"

I have to admit that I am a fan of Zach Harris. His finely crafted paintings include hand made painted frames that contain and expand the content of each painting. I get the feeling that these space age art nouveau tropes are coming from a sincerely authentic place. It is nice to see craftsmanship meld with content so seamlessly. In a strange way they remind me of Jim Nutts paintings from 30 years ago with their meticulous obsessive painting and painted frames.
