Harriet Porter

Out_of_the_shadow_teapotHarriet attempts to capture the essence of light as it falls on her subject and its surroundings. Distraction is stripped away leaving subtle gradations

of colour temperature within a limited palette. These narrow parameters allow her to delve deeper towards the play of light, shadow, focus and line – seeking their absence and presence within the frame.

Harriet studied at Central Saint Martins and is based at ColdharbourLondon Studios in Brixton. Her subject matter literally reflects this tranquil escape from the crowded frenetic noise of urban life: painted in quiet solitude;at peace, basking in uncluttered space.
