Today felt like a good day to catch up on some of the latest from one of my favourites – kiwi illustrator Henrietta Harris. She has recently returned from an arty sabbatical in Europe completing works for Scope Basel in Switzerland and is currently home working on pieces for an exhibition in Miami! Killing it!
As my sister unpacked into her home in Christchurch and hung her art collection in temporary spots (during the wild, pre-renovation period), I noticed something crazy. The large majority of her art featured birds. They were in print and painted, they were abstracted and reproduced in bright, photo realism. She even had an incredible collection of pinned feathers from Australian natives in a frame! It was such a weird realisation for her and we laughed about how this could have happened, subconsciously, over the years and even why? Then the mirror
You are getting the first heads up on this one peeps! Henrietta Harris is just this morning releasing this beautiful fine art print; “Haven’t You Ever Looked Up?” Now that she is very much dedicated to working on collections for shows and only offering originals, this is your chance to grab a print while you can. I am! For sure! This is how: A4 size Full colour print on 300gsm Hahnemuhle watercolour paper Signed and numbered, limited edition of 100 $80 NZD plus $7 p&p (NZ) or $12 p&p (worldwide)
I wanted to end the week with something familiar, impressive and nice on the eye – so I fell back on the consistently beautiful and recognisable work of NZ artist; Henrietta Harris. I hope you all have weekend of crisp fresh mornings and warm sunny days. I am super excited to have one of my besties visiting from Wanaka and hopefully indulging my zombie love with seats to new Auckland show; Apocalypse Z.
