Roman Fine Art is pleased to announce an upcoming solo exhibition of new paintings by Grant Haffner. Mohawk Trail, marks Haffner’s first solo exhibit in eleven years and his first show at Roman Fine Art. Mohawk Trail will open with a reception for the artist Saturday, May 27, 7-9pm.
For over a decade Haffner has captivated art enthusiasts and collectors with his paintings of Hamptons’ roadways. His renditions of familiar roads and local landmarks, often set ablaze in dayglow, sunset colors, have made him one of the most sought after artists on the East End. Whether it’s a cool gray winter scene on Bay Point or a night sky overlooking Gardiner’s Bay, those that are familiar with the highways and byways of the Hamptons, can easily recognize their favorite routes and lots depicted in Haffner’s works. In Mohawk Trail, Haffner’s first solo exhibit in eleven years, the artist begins to explore an entirely new landscape. The low-lying bays and farmlands of the South Fork are traded for the mountain ridges and deep gorges of Western Massachusetts. This seminal exhibition for Haffner marks an entirely new chapter in his career as a painter.
Arguably, no local artist captures the South Fork locales we love, like Haffner. This detail becomes a bit surprising when one realizes that Haffner is no longer a local artist. He lives and works in Massachusetts. Haffner had lived in the Hamptons for most of his life and he has been a fixture in the art scene here for at least a dozen years, but most fans of his work do not realize that he moved to Massachusetts in the Spring of 2016. For almost a year now, Haffner has continued to paint scenes of the Hamptons, works that have earned him an international following, but the impetus to create an entirely new body of work had already taken root, even before he left Sag Harbor. For years, Haffner longed to explore a new set of roads and locations and fortuitously, his relocation to Western MA allowed him intimate access to the Mohawk Trail region. True to Haffner’s process, these paintings are often created from photographs collected during his travels through the area. Capturing the roads, trails and colors of hills and mountains have infused Haffner’s newest works with something fresh. We see this new landscape through familiar eyes with a fresh perspective.
Grant Haffner has over a hundred works in private collections around the US, Europe and Asia. Actress Rose McGowan and Internationally renowned collector Yusaku Maezawa are among his notable patrons. His work has been exhibited in numerous galleries, museums and art fairs including Visions West Gallery, Denver, CO; Vered Gallery, East Hampton, NY; One Art Space, NY, NY; Dorsch Gallery, Miami, FL; Sebastian Foster Gallery, Austin, TX; Islip Art Museum, East Islip, NY; Scope Basel, Basel Switzerland; Scope New York, NY, NY; Texas Contemporary, Houston, TX. Damien Roman has represented Haffner since 2009, but this is their first solo exhibit together at Roman Fine Art.
