Henrietta Harris

Henrietta Harris is an Auckland-born artist and painter known for her series of distorted watercolor and gouache portraits. Through amazing technical skills, she makes memorable faces characterized by clean brushstrokes. Seemingly caught in moments of a romantic introspection bordering on spiritual transcendence, Harris’ subjects dissolve into swirls, scribbles, and line. Her inspiring, mutable and memorable portraits, hands, faces, brains, glaciers seem to float away from each other, reminding viewers of those moments when your body is present but your mind drifts away to another place far away with the reality that you are in. Her pastel-toned watercolors are calling the person in front of them for closer examination, promising a trip to borderless landscapes, stripped from time and space.
