Ones to Watch: Jennifer Harris

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

The work of Queensland-based artist Jennifer Harris is grounded in person reactions to the spaces, patterns and colours of the natural world. Her paintings are not traditional, epic landscapes; rather, they are abstracted glimpses that – by virtue of their interpretive nature – provide the eye with spaces to breathe beyond the grid. Each painting is built up over layers of acrylic, glaze and impasto that mimic the satisfying unpredictability of textures and finishes in nature. Over the years, Jennifer has been quietly evolving her art practice, producing a constant stream of new works which are shown in the regular group exhibitions that she participates in. The artist is currently working towards a solo exhibition to be held in 2020.
