Glass Paintings by Marcus Harvey

13 March 2012

British artist Marcus Harvey’s work always leaves a lasting impression. From his groundbreaking Sensation show at London’s Royal Academy of Arts (1997) where he shocked audiences with an enormous portrait of serial killer Myrna Hyndley, made out of child-sized handprints, to the brand new pieces that will be showcased at the Glass Paintings exhibition at Reflex Amsterdam: his work captivates and intrigues.

Most of the paintings that will be shown at Reflex Amsterdam, from April 7th to May 16th, haven’t been exhibited before. The pieces cast the viewer in the role of Peeping Tom, as they look through the distorted glass of a glass door to the world beyond. From lone toilet-rolls, to skulls, to a child in a batman costume: the works are strongly voyeuristic, humorous and mysterious. There’s more than meets the eye, and Marcus Harvey has captivated this sense.
To coincide with the exhibition a beautiful limited edition book will be published by Reflex Editions. You can purchase this book through Famous Auction House.

Marcus Harvey will be present at the exhibition opening on April 7th,, where he will sign some copies of the book: should you want to attend then you can now contact us for a place on the guestlist.
Email us at info@famous.nl for the guestlist, to reserve a signed book, or if you have any questions regarding the exhibition.
