Responding to an increasingly digitalised world where images and time periods merge and appear in one seemingly eternal present, Harriet Gillett’s practice attempts to slow down these increasingly fast-paced encounters into images of reverie.
She looks to offer a transitional space that is both within and beyond the viewer’s experiences by adopting a surrealistic logic to transform familiar scenes. Blurring the experienced and imagined, she works from quickly sketched impressions often made from life with a slower, intuitive approach to colour and light that allows for a more psychological exploration of time and place.
