The Daughter Paintings
Contemporary artist Julie Harman Dovan of New York City explores relationships to her daughters through expressive small scale portraits. She uses them as inspiration because she knows time is of the essence, and wants to capture the very moments when they are young and innocent. Painting them gives her a chance to shed light on a rare interlude in the frenzied rush of the mother-daughter relationship. The process also mirrors her own maturation from girlhood into womanhood. The exhibition will also be on view in VR at Aplomb inside ArtGate during Sep-Oct.
