Nicholas Harper presents a number of new landscapes along side his iconic portraits. Also on veiw are a number of studies and a few of his photographs of historic NE churches.
Nicholas Harper is an Atelier trained, award-winning artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Harper refers to his personal artistic style as magical realism and is heavily influenced by Russian and Orthodox Iconography as well as literature and philosophy.
Perhaps most well known for his portraits of women with long necks, Harper attempts to convey his personal symbology in which the compositions relate to the inner struggle within each of us, between our spiritual potential and our worldly natures. Ultimately, Harper hopes to use his images as a mirror in which the viewer might glimpse at his or her own divinity.
In 1999 Harper set out to open an art gallery, The Rogue Buddha, to facilitate a cross-disciplinary exhibition program that combined two and three-dimensional exhibits with dance, theater, film, music and the literary arts.
Over the past 20 years, while continuing to own and operate the Rogue Buddha Gallery, Harper continues to expand upon his personal artistic repertoire. Harper has exhibited throughout the country and is collected internationally in both private and public collections. He has appeared in numerous publications, including CNN, where he was named as an artist to watch.
We hope you can enjoy his work in person at the Rogue Buddha Gallery in the very near future!
We love our fans!
