James Havard (American, b.1937)

Colliding illusionistic and abstract imagery, the early works of James Havard (American, b.1937) are sites of synthesis and simultaneous discordance. They serve as visual precursors to certain forms of post-Internet art with their pastel colors and apparently arbitrary compositions that nevertheless elicit a semiotic language. In the late 1970s Havard began looking to Native American culture for inspiration, and moved away from trompe l’oeil techniques of shadow painting. His works are included in the collections of the Guggenheim, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, Stockholm, and LACMA, Los Angeles, among others.
