Jason McCoy Gallery is honored to present a special exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Raymond Han, in memoriam of his life’s work.

Though best known for his still lifes, Han’s four decades-spanning oeuvre further includes large bodies of figurative paintings, abstract compositions, and sculptures. It was his unique sensibility for color and finely rendered forms that succeeded in transforming the many objects and objectives of his eclectic interests. This exhibition includes selections that are each touched upon by the characteristics of tranquility and timelessness that remained a consistent undercurrent to Han’s work throughout shifting subject matters and mediums.

Raymond Han was born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1931. His work is in the permanent collections of The Honolulu Museum of Art, the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute (Utica, New York), The Fenimore Art Museum (Cooperstown, New York) and the Picker Art Gallery (Colgate College, Hamilton, New York), among others. He lived and worked in New York City and Cooperstown, New York until his death.
