Figge Art Museum Exhibits ParkeHarrison Gravures


“The Architect’s Brother” features 42 large-scale photographs made by Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, many of which are photogravure prints.  The exhibit runs through Oct. 29 at the Figge Museum of Art, in Davenport, Iowa.

"Images of a man blowing pollen off a mammoth flower, producing clouds in a pit or bandaging branches to a dying tree may seem the result of simple manipulation of digital photos. Yet curator Michelle Robinson said viewers are often shocked to hear the truth: Nothing in the photographs is computer generated."
