THE HUM

Henrietta Harris
The Hum
Exhibition: May 4th – May 17th
Opening Night: May 9th 5pm – 9pm 2015

The Hum is Henrietta Harris’ first solo exhibition at Robert Fontaine Gallery. This new body of work is an exploration of portraiture. The Artist’s use of watercolor and its fluidity; dislocating and redefining our perception of a portrait’s meaning, and placement as human reflection.

Harris’s work is enigmatic and introspective, isolating heavy-lidded subjects lost in thought. Her paintings are often described as ‘deconstructed portraiture,’ and draw focus on the hesitant figures she paints with deliberate glitches in their form. Harris’s new work highlights less the individual, and instead the forms a person inhabits metaphorically. Her paintings are wet, and alive..and reside in a non-place as if momentarily transfigured to a borderless landscape wherein the subjects seem large and small, disputing both time and space.

Henrietta Harris exhibits internationally and resides in Auckland, New Zealand.
