New Zealand-born artist Henrietta Harris makes paintings that often involve portraiture with a departure into the surreal. With faces skillfully obscured and misplaced by the clean sweep of a brushstroke, her portraits can be seen as distorted, doubled or fragmented. Other subjects for her paintings include images of brains, mountains, and food. She primarily works with watercolor paint on paper but also works with pen, gouache, acrylic, and gold leaf.
Harris has exhibited in New Zealand, Australia, London and New York, as well as produced imagery for t-shirts, record covers, and in print publications.
