Harold Ancart — Soft Places (Selected Works on Paper 2015/2018) Presentation of the limited editions Sunday November 18, 5–7 pm

Paintings and drawings are the main focus of Harold Ancart’s practice. Distinctly graphic, his high contrast forms are illuminated by delicate accents, intoxicating colors, and his unique oil stick application. In the second volume of Soft Places, Harold Ancart continues his journey through psychedelic, colorful landscapes.
