Harrison (1925-1990) titled "Underworld Baseball" and "Heavenly Baseball". Presented as a diptych series of two drawings. Signed and dated 12-17-88 by the artist. Abstract and figurative drawing in white chalk, oil pastel, acrylic paint and pencil on black paper. Each drawing is float mounted and framed in a silver leaf gallery frame. Measures: 31.25" H x 42.75" W each. James C. Harrison was born November 27th, 1925 in Detroit. Although largely self-taught, Harrison studied briefly at Cranbrook Acadamy of Art and Olivet College before moving to New York City in 1950. By the mid-1950's he had devised a style of portraiture that incorporated the seemingly random scribbles of surrealist automatist drawing. Drawing was largely the basis of Harrison’s art. He called his work “painting - drawing". In the 1970's and 80's, James Harrison produced a remarkable body of densely worked, visionary paintings and drawings that have lately acquired cult following. Prolonged study of Harrison's work might reveal a coherent system of symbols and cosmic psychology underwriting Harrison's art. What is more immediately compelling is the tension between recognizable mystical imagery and painterly obfuscation, which might be read as a metaphor for the artist's struggle to transcend his own psychic chaos. Participating in several group exhibitions, Harrison had his first one-man exhibition at A Place Apart Gallery in Brooklyn in 1983. In 1987 at the age of 58, the Ledisflam Gallery in SoHo, New York mounted a 40-year retrospective of his work. James C. Harrison was a protégé of Cy Twombly and Robert Rauschenberg and was influenced by artist such as Jean Michel Basquiat, Philip Guston and Willem de Kooning. Harrison died on November 10th, 1990. less
