Elisse Pogofsky-Harris | Spirits, Wolves, and Metaphors
Designed by Ultragraphics
Introduction by Richard V. West
Essay by T. Hart Monroe
This catalogue was published by the Frye Art Museum in conjunction with its exhibition Elisse Pogofsky-Harris: Spirits, Wolves, and Metaphors (May 8–June 28, 1998), a part of the Frye’s Viewpoints series, which is devoted to the work of contemporary artists who are redefining the concepts of representation and content in modern painting.
In the paintings of Elisse Pogofsky-Harris, representation serves as a metaphorical language, creating a dream world where the past and present merge. Art historical allusions, personal symbolism, and carefully observed reality intertwine in compositions that speak to both individual and universal concerns. In Pogofsky-Harris’s Baroque-inspired work, drapery replaces the human figure as the main subject.
This publication includes an introduction by Richard V. West, essay by T. Hart Monroe, artist’s statement and biography and exhibition checklist along with full color illustrations of the exhibition artwork.
