Haroutunian’s “Tides” oil on gessoed paper 30×22
Littlefield Gallery in Winter Harbor presents “Joseph Haroutunian: Horizons” from Monday, June 29 through Sunday, July 26. There will be an artist’s reception Friday, July 17 from 5 to 7 p.m.
” My painting involves an intuitive process that is free of specific subject matter,” said Haroutunian. “From 1985 to 2000, my focus shifted back and forth between allover fields and forms within fields. In 2000, I began the geometrical formatting of my fields. This was simply the result of liking the look of one painting when it came in close proximity to another painting. I started by adding one painting to another on the same canvas. This process evolved into varieties of combinations, both vertical and horizontal. I am currently at a point where large vertical sections are suggested by the spontaneously occurring layers in horizontal paintings.”
