Art Brokerage: Harry McCormick American Artist: b. 1942. The atmospheric interiors of restaurants and bars are the focus of McCormick's increasingly psychological examination of isolated individuals. Seductive visual elements portray feelings of alienation associated with contemporary urban life. These paintings address the pause between moments of possible dramatic action. McCormick's capacity for minute description disguises a more private vision. Neither romantic nor glamorous, his closely observed naturalism has a capacity to arrest our attention and persuade us to share both his fascination with objects and the latent content. While McCormick's work, with it's obvious technical virtuosity, has remained aloof from any modernist mold, it deserves close scrutiny, going beyond the visual content of his chosen subjects to the nature of contemporary relationships.
