About the work
David Harrison
British, b. 1954
Follow

An influence on- and contemporary of Peter Doig, David Harrison presents hallucinatory, luminously colored visions of the natural and supernatural world in his paintings, sculptures, and collage. Populated by fantastical characters and wildlife, Harrison's work references fairy tales, myth, and literature written by such authors as Nikolai Gogol and Lewis Carroll. Paintings are typically done on rough wood panels or canvas, as in a 2008 suite based on historical scents from the perfume house Guerlain. His mixed-media sculptures of hares, owls, and other animals imbued with magical properties are shaped from found and everyday materials like Sellotape.
