THE BERKELEY PAINTINGS
Works on Paper
In the winter of January 2006, the artist Galvin Harrison left the icy cold temperatures of Scandinavia for the more hospitable climate of California. A long standing invitation by a friend and colleague, the Californian artist
Dana 'Marty' McCutcheon to travel to California and paint was accepted. Large canvases were ordered, paint and various working tools were procured, accommodation provided, and at the tail end of January  Galvin Harrison was collected from San Francisco airport and driven to Berkeley. The studio provided was located on 2571 Shattuck Avenue, a historical building with a strong attachment to Californian painting as the building had in its time provided studio space for the renowned Bay Area painters David Parks, Elmer Bischoff and Richard Diebenkorn. Over a period of several months, Galvin Harrison painted a substantial body of work largely inspired by the surrounding Bay Area and in particular the harbour area of the port of Oakland. This body of work has since been referred to as the `Berkeley Paintings´.
