6:10 at 610 Artist Reception: Henrik Haaland
Henrik Haaland bring years of printmaking and painting experience and a startling vision of nuance and scale in his series of large-format, primarily single-block woodcuts. His style has developed through the “marriage between the given and imposed" and will be showcased through a select combination of wood block prints and paintings.
After accepting the dictates of organic pine wood grain patterns he "creates a series of imposed patterns (cuts & marks). The resulting image competes with the natural surface texture of the wood. His subject matter is also a duality between two worlds: the recognizable features of Colorado's Cimarron Mountains, rural eastern Dutchess County, New York, and Western Connecticut – his boyhood home - and the more foreign world of patterns and marks. This exhibition will be a combination of wood block prints and paintings.
Henrik's works will be on display from January 2-31, 2019 with an artist reception on January 20.
