Opening reception to be held September 28th from 6:30-9pm
Harrison Doyle has always found comfort in two places: traditional art-making and counter-culture lifestyles. He finds freedom in carving a path against the grain. His muse is his personal journey into a culture that he continues to explore. The life of a writer is a statement in itself and has become his subject for the basis of his first solo exhibition entitled “An Urban Narrative: Let Us Now Praise Infamous Men”
From a young age, Harrison always enjoyed making art with inspiration from life. His experience at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts embedded a respect for traditional techniques. His life as a writer taught him about typography and how to use enamel and spray paint. He also gained a large sign collection and a respect for a culture that birthed the Urban Art movement. Combining his passions for traditional American Art, his environment, and his lifestyle; Harrison Doyle’s ‘Urban Narrative ’ is a snapshot of a chapter in his life. Authentic and elusive; humble and unadulterated; his work is meticulously rendered and painstakingly painted on found metal signs encased with an innovative technique to ensure to its beholder that the sum of all of its parts are greater than the work alone.
