'Passage' A Solo Exhibition By Grant Haffner
Thursday, September 12 at 7:00pm — 5 E 82nd St Upper East Side / Yorkville — 5 East 82nd Street, New York, NY 10028
Tambaran 2 Gallery and The TAX Collection are pleased to present 'Passage' - a solo exhibition by New York artist Grant Haffner. Opening September 12th - Haffner's latest exhibition and first with the gallery presents a collection of new original work that explores memory, transition, movement and the biological relationship between humans and nature. Grant Haffner was a resident of Long Island’s East End for most of his life. His images are still inspired by and reflect the country roads, flat landscapes and surrounding water that he would absorb while traveling the area in his pickup truck. Through linear, dreamlike landscapes, Haffner elevates the often overlooked experience of road-travel to an exploration of the subtlety of light and emotion. "I aim to make the viewer feel like they are alone on this journey, to respond to the colors represented in the work, and to experience an emotive reaction. My paintings allow the viewer to escape life, to get behind the wheel and to feel the flow of forward motion and momentum" - Grant Haffner
