Identity Papers | O K Harris Gallery | New York
Opening Saturday 29 October 2011 3 – 5pm
Ivan Karp of O K Harris offered me a show after seeing my mixed-media works in the book Identity Papers. These are small pieces, 10” tall x 6” wide, made up of sketches, hand-cut paper calligraphy, Unlike most of my paintings, many contain elements of recognizable imagery. I am very pleased to be showing in a gallery with such a rich and important history.
Ivan Karp served as co-director of Leo Castelli Gallery from 1959 – 1969, during which time he was instrumental in launching the careers of pop artists Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenburg, Tom Wesselmann and John Chamberlain. In 1969, Ivan broke away to launch his own gallery, O K Harris. OK Harris was among the first to exhibit the work of Duane Hanson, Deborah Butterfield, Manny Farber, Richard Pettibone, Robert Bechtle, Malcolm Morley, Arman, and others.
My wife, Vivienne Flesher, and I look forward to attending the opening, 3 – 5 pm, Saturday, 29 October.
The show remains up until 03 December.
