Traveling around the world to locations such as China, Chile, Alaska and India, Harry Agress photographs landscapes and portraits that capture the essence of the diverse cultures he encounters. Laumont was pleased to produce the works for Agress’ exhibition “A World of Wonder, Beauty and Spirit” which was held in the lobby of Fisher Brothers at 299 Park Avenue last year before moving to 605 Third Avenue. All prints are UV curable inkjet on Dibond, created using one of the new technologies our studio has to offer.
In this body of work the viewer can journey to a scene of a remarkable rainbow cast over Dart River and surrounding mountains in New Zealand, local community members in Amarapura gathered on the oldest teakwood bridge in the world against the backdrop of a blazing sunset, 500-year-old stone Moai statues under a starlit sky. In the picture “Blue Glacier” a variety of complex colors and natural design can be seen from an intimate perspective contrary to images of glaciers that are frequently displayed as large panoramas.
As a retired radiologist, Agress has spent 36 years looking inside the human body. Photography has allowed him to focus on the human exterior and the environments in which it inhabits. To view the artist’s website click the link here.
Update: Agress was selected to exhibit this series at the first US “The Other Art Fair,” a juried exhibition sponsored by Saatchi Art, Brooklyn, NY. June 1-4, 2017. The fair has previously occurred in London, Sydney, and Melbourne, where there were 14,000 attendees at each one over the 4-day period.
