Henrietta Harris is an Auckland, New Zealand-born artist known for her
series of distorted watercolour and oil portraits, and her sparse ink
and pencil drawings.
Since graduating in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Auckland
University of Technology, Henrietta has steadily built up a name for
herself and has exhibited world-wide.
Through outstanding technical skills, she captures feelings of lingering
in time, loneliness and doubt with her sensitive subjects. Her paintings
provoke emotion with their dream-like palettes- eyes are downcast, faces
turned away, doubled in a glitch, obscured by an arrogant pink swish.
Harris also paints smoky, dreamy landscapes and seascapes in her muted
colours, often covering these with pink or mist. She’s also well-known
for her faceless ball-point pen ‘hair’ drawings.
Clients include Apple Watch, Vanity Fair France, Flying Nun Records,
Karen Walker, and many more. Harris has exhibited in New Zealand, Miami,
Melbourne, LA, New York, London, Paris, and more.
