The Paintings of Harvey Wilson
Extended until December 17th
Harvey Wilson, a native of Massachusetts, has been living and working in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, for over thirty years. He has shown his work widely and is represented in many private collections.
Selected one man shows include: The Durst Organization, The Lobby Gallery, 1155 Avenue of the Americas, NY 1998, 2003; Tillie's of Brooklyn, 1997, 2000; RichArt, NY 1995, 1997; Barocco Cafe, Greenwich Village, NY 1997; Galeria Art House Dornbirn, Austria 1991; Pratt Institute 1984; Chelsea Hotel Show, NY, 1976.
My work involves the process of expressing primordial impulses; that is, it renders the unconscious conscious through the subtle choreography of sensations that move, grow, and achieve the own unique characteristics. The paintings naturally evolve into evocations of the spirit of life.
Since its inception Tillies has shown the work of a different visual artist every month, most of them from the area, including: Sameeh Alderazi, Eric Araujo, C Bangs (in collaboration with Gregory Matloff and Les Johnson), Rebecca Boccio, Tobias Brill, Nan Carey, Ricardo Cortes, Matthew Cramer, Donna DeCesare, Anthony DeSimone, Gwynne Duncan, Cynthia Edorh, Christine Finley, The Fort Greene Photography Club, Robert Goldstrom, Joe Greenstein, Erica Harris, Natasha Harsh, Kathleen Hayek, Daina Higgins, E.F. Higgins, Robyn Holl, Doug Madill, Robert Matson, Nell McClister, Mascha Oehlmann, Empress Modupe Olufunmi-Diop, Thomas Patrick OConnell, Parker "Woody" Pantilla, Keith Pavia, Patricia Peticolas, Sean Qualls, Laurie Sermos, Thanut Singhasuvich, Angie Smith, David Sokosh, Leah Stubbs, Harvey Wilson, The Zimbabwe Artists Project, and Young Printmakers from Pratt Institute. Every May we also feature an exhibition of the work of our vastly overqualified staff.
