Phil Harris at Pushdot

Portland photographer Phil Harris is currently exhibiting images from his Duration series of large-scale, time-based inkjet prints through Friday, July 28 at Pushdot Studio Gallery, 2505 SE 11th Ave., Suite 104. 

The pictures are about the passage of time, change and the unstable quality of the fleeting moment. All the images were made using a small hand-held point-and-shoot camera, along with some patience and wholehearted attention. Each assembled picture lays out a process of change that can be hard to understand without a visual guide.

Harris has been a Portland-based art photographer for decades. He says that two streams have fed his art practice over the course of his career–teaching and meditation practice. The former has occurred across a number of fields at Oregon College of Art and Craft, and the latter has taken the form of Buddhist Vipassana (insight) practice. Harris credits his ability to see and gather the evidence of change that is expressed in Duration to meditation.

Pushdot is located in the Ford building; enter on SE Division St. The gallery is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5 pm with free admission.
