Harriet Gillet

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.
