Del Harrow: Analogue

August 19 – October 10, 2021

About the Exhibition

Harvey Preston Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new sculptures by Del Harrow. After many years working in ways that combine digital technology with material forming processes, this past year—with more time being spent online—Harrow found himself conversely pulled towards more immediate ways of working.

The title of the exhibition, Analogue, is meant to reference multiple meanings of the word—specifically “not digital” and “analogous to”. In thinking about the latter, Del states “these objects are reflections on the complex and paradoxical nature of ‘container’ as an analogy for thinking our world.” In other words, how thought itself, creates the body, identity, objects, property, nation, or territory. The works presented in this exhibition are both physical containers, and diagrams for the idea of a container—a surface that holds content and space.

About the Artist

Del Harrow lives and works in Fort Collins, CO with his wife, potter Sanam Emami and their son, William. He is an Associate Professor at Colorado State University where he teaches Sculpture, Digital Fabrication, and Ceramics. His art practice spans genres of sculpture and design, and integrates traditional manual and skill based forming processes with digital fabrication technology.

Harrow has been invited to lecture widely on his own work and on the intersection of digital fabrication and craft in contemporary art and education. Recent lectures include Syracuse University/The Everson Museum of Art, The Auerbach Endowed Lecture Series at Hartford Art School, CT, and the Current Perspectives Lecture Series at Kansas City Art Institute. His work has been exhibited at The Milwaukee Art Museum, The Denver Art Museum, The Arizona State University Art Museum, Vox Populi Gallery, and The Museum of Fine Art in Boston. He is represented by Haw Contemporary in Kansas City, MO, and Harvey Preston gallery in Aspen, CO.

In 2020 Harrow received a United States Artist Fellowship—“a $50,000 unrestricted award celebrating artists and cultural practitioners who have significantly contributed to the creative landscape and arts ecosystem of the country.”
