The artist's images bounce between a dreamy Texas surrealism and a national American culture shock pop floating on brightly painted color field backdrops. The juxtaposed images speak to local, national and international concerns in a cross cultural language gleaned from a mix of Madison Avenue, Carlos Castaneda, and the evening news. Stylistically Harithas simplifies in this most recent offering and is more pron to neo-pop than in her earlier collage works, as she blurs the boundaries between high and low art appropriating images in her collection of hard copy print materials. The results are slightly suspended scanned images printed on Plexiglas laid over painted backgrounds with simple framing holding it all together in this latest departure galloping across the Urban Frontier.
