In our current exhibition, “Orange Crush”, (co-curated with @galleryorange ) we are excited to share the works of artists, new to the gallery. Harriet White @harrietwhiteart is one of these new artists...
Through painting, Harriet’s aim is to combine photographic accuracy and painterly distortion to create a removed ‘version’ of an image, one that has been translated but in itself is open to interpretation; to suggest the presence of some kind of narrative but never to clarify what it might be.
The cinematic dimensions and the use of devices such as theatrical makeup, wigs and synthetic lighting can render the source photograph at once heavily composed and also somewhat ambiguous. All of these elements might reference the artificial world of cinema in general, but don't specify; an implication of something dreamt, misremembered or removed..
"Paradisco', 2011, Oil on linen, 78.5x2x39.5" (diptych), is available as part of our current exhibition. To learn more about Harriet and her available works, email us at info @parlor -gallery.com or direct message us for details and pricing.
