Harold Reddicliffe
American, b. 1947
Follow

Vintage movie and slide projectors, model airplane engines, cameras, and microscopes are the objects Harold Reddicliffe paints in a photorealist style. The mechanical subjects are carefully rendered with oils against a monochromatic background, drawing attention to combinations of color, light, form, and geometry. He has stated that his work explores “the transformation that occurs when ordinary objects are subjected to extraordinary scrutiny.” The result is compositions at once abstract and figurative, both formal studies and explorations of mechanics.
