Tim Harper: Urban Distraction
Every Weekday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
SFMOMA Artists Gallery presents an exhibit of lively, colorful, map-inspired paintings by local painter Tim Harper in Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture’s office in Building C, Suite 260. The exhibit includes many of the paintings from Harper’s “Urban Distraction” series; a project he started after becoming fascinated with the satellite images of cities he found on Google Earth.
Harper has incorporated paint, collage, and mixed-media elements depicting his favorite cities on large canvases. His lighthearted paintings can be viewed close-up to admire the variety of mixed-media details, or far away to appreciate the overall compositions. Harper seeks to capture the many distractions and attractions found in urban settings around the world.
