Press Release – Melanie Roger Gallery

An exhibition of new work by HENRIETTA HARRIS as a result of her 2018 NES Artist Residency in Skagaströnd, Iceland where she responded to the unique and challenging environment with a new landscape series.

Henrietta Harris is an Auckland, New Zealand-born artist known for her series of distorted watercolour and oil portraits, and her sparse ink and pencil drawings. Since graduating in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Auckland University of Technology, Harris has steadily built up a name for herself and has exhibited world-wide. Through outstanding technical skills, she captures feelings of lingering in time, loneliness and doubt with her sensitive subjects. Her portrait paintings provoke emotion with their dream-like palettes- eyes are downcast, faces turned away, doubled in a glitch, obscured by an arrogant pink swish.

Harris also paints smoky, dreamy landscapes and seascapes in her muted colours, often covering these with pink or mist. She’s also well-known for her faceless ball-point pen ‘hair’ drawings.
Harris has exhibited in New Zealand, Miami, Melbourne, LA, New York, London, Paris, and more. This will be her second solo exhibition with Melanie Roger Gallery and our first exhibition opening of 2019.
