A painter who also writes about art, Hearne Pardee has focused his investigations on the everyday landscape since moving to Davis in 2001. His color compositions and on-site paintings of houses, yards and schools are inflected by memory. They combine the optical discipline of Josef Albers with the spatial improvisation of Hans Hofmann.
