James Havard Painting

Critically-acclaimed New York artist James Havard has shown a mastery of a variety of techniques throughout his 40-year career: from its origins in traditional realism, to a development in high-brow minimalist works in resin to elegant mixed media abstract canvases, boxes, and boards, to expressive oil and encaustic works, to his latest exuberant painting and sculpture. Throughout his career, Havard has consistently referenced diverse indigenous cultures with unrestrained freedom in his use of color.

“A master colorist, manipulator of paint, and conjuror of images and associations, Havard skillfully melds styles, cultures, eras, and emotive states of being into extraordinary works of art,” writes Julie Sasse, chief curator at the Tucson Museum of Art. “Havard’s ability to mix cultures, eras, media, and techniques lies in his keen eye for juxtaposing shapes, colors, and textures. These energized investigations are statements about the rich tapestry of cultural history and Havard’s lively interest in it.”

For over 40 years James Havard has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Europe, including solo shows in Germany, France, Sweden and Denmark. His work is included in the permanent public collections of such esteemed institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Smithsonian, and the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm, Sweden.
