About HARMONIE: Two highly notable artists of illustration and the figurative arts come together in ‘Harmonie,’ an exhibit featuring the intersection of styles and sensibilities between the figurative paintings of George Pratt and Felipe Echevarria. Ranging from watercolor, oil, pastel, and other traditional media, this body of work examines the beauty and mystery of the human figure. On the whole, ‘Harmonie’ is composed of aesthetic reflections on figurative expression, exploring the evocative power of color, texture, design, and style as harmonious parts of a single emotional and visual vocabulary.
Pratt’s work ranges from vivid realism to contemplative explorations in mark-making and composition, where Echevarria’s work embraces a strong illustrative intuition for the figure that speaks in an elegant simplicity of color and design. Their work in ‘Harmonie’ runs the gamut of figurative expressions which ultimately reveals the underappreciated complexity of figurative art in modern times - they transcend the image and become thoughtful conduits to the humanity of their subjects.
