Irving Harper : Works on Paper

A few weeks ago this blog posted about the wonderful Irving Harper. Today we show another glimpse in to his creative world. The new title 'Works On Paper' is now available from Skira Rizzoli

" Encompassing influences as diverse as Picasso, Egyptian hieroglyphs, the art of Oceana and Africa, the architecture of Paris, and the American beech tree that shades the Rye, New York home he has lived in for over 50 years, the artist’s private meditations reveal an informed aesthetic consciousness expressing itself as pure joy. Harper’s private work delivers on the promise of modernism: humble materials elevated by brilliant design and craftsmanship, and integrating the natural world to create objects in a universally understood language."
