Harris Harvey Gallery is pleased to present “India – Dreaming the World,” an exhibition of new paintings and etchings by Seattle-based artist Wendy Thon. Thon explores daily rhythms and captivating environments found in India, evoking a rich visual reserve from her travels there. For the artist, India offers a vibrant experience; immersed in culture, history, architecture, art and bountiful color.
Influenced by her physical surroundings as well as an intense personal vision Thon creates a feeling of intimacy in her work. She is known for her imaginative narrative paintings that are often based on her travel experiences. The artist portrays human and animal figures in architectural scenes or landscapes that strongly emit the ambience and culture of the locale. Thon seeks a universal human chord that transcends borders.
