A Day At The Beach

Though artist Karissa Ann Harvey never met her great grandfather, this painting is a direct collaboration between the pair's shared fascination with the everyday person. Using a hidden camera, Karissa's great grandfather snapped photos of unsuspecting sunbathers along the Jersey Shore and Coney Island. They existed only in memory and stories for years, but after they finally resurfaced, Karissa was amazed by their keen aesthetic feel.

Newly inspired by the photos' clandestine qualities, Karissa converts the secretive black and whites into vibrant painted portraits that are equal parts art and voyeur, both beautiful and slightly dark. In this eye-catching piece, a man stands on the sand alone, punctuated by broad brushstrokes and a vivid palette. Made in New Jersey, printed and stretched in Oregon.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Karissa Ann Harvey

Karissa Harvey is an emerging artist from Farmingdale, New Jersey. She works in oils and glazes to create colorful, large scale portraits and scenes with scattered focal points and a slightly blurred sense of reality. Her paintings are based on gesture, with a loose and almost accidental undertone, and then brought to focus here and there,, allowing the viewer to weave in and out of pockets of clarity. This scattered abstraction gives her images a sense of energy or movement, while simultaneously achieving a peaceful stillness.
