Surreal portraits by Henrietta Harris
Since graduating in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Auckland University of Technology, Henrietta Harris has steadily built up a name for herself as a solid New Zealand artist.
Her paintings often involved portraiture with a departure into the surreal with faces skillfully obscured and misplaced by the clean sweep of a brushstroke. She primarily works with watercolour paint on paper.
She has skilfully hand-drawn hands, faces, brains, glaciers and more which have appeared in shows all over New Zealand, Australia, London and New York, on t-shirts, on record covers and in fine print publications.
Clients include Vanity Fair (France), The Department Store (Auckland), Karen Walker, BITE Magazine, Flying Nun Records, VERAMEAT, Coffee Supreme (New Zealand), Ruby (New Zealand), and many more.
