DESCRIPTION

David R. Harper is interested in the form and idea of memorials, those markers that formalize links between memory and present experience. Within his works – embroidered prints and taxidermy-based sculptures – he refers to certain periods, modes of craft, and embellishment that articulate peculiar links to an ‘ordered’ natural world. Speaking to the intersections of personal and universal mythologies, gender issues and identity, Harper engages the viewer in a dialogue on the metaphoric weight that the objects present both historically and emotionally.
