Marshal Harris | "Well, That's Something You Don't See Everyday"
Apr 05, 2021 - Jun 26, 2021
With an investigative eye, Mr. Harris creates life-sized (or larger) photo-realistic drawings of subjects laboriously executed with graphite on Mylar. He chooses common everyday people, saddles, skulls, vegetables, or utilitarian objects that he finds intriguing in their complexity. The drawings focus attention on minute details that may be overlooked, the fold, the scratch, the flaw, no characteristic is too small to replicate. This extraordinary attention to detail and significance behind those characteristics requires looking deeply into the history of an object to discover what makes its experiences relevant. Mr. Harris will exhibit an array of works from various projects he is currently engaged in for the mesquite Arts Center.
