Happy Portrait Monday!

Today's Portrait Monday is brought to you by the Winsor Gallery intern, Alex M.F. Quicho, and Auckland artist, Henrietta Harris.

Completed for her recent solo show in Auckland, "Hold Still", Your Tomorrow is a peacefully unsettling watercolour piece that brings to mind emotional situations of disconnect. Harris juxtaposes exquisitely delicate traditional rendering with imagery of the digital age -- scanner smears, popped wires, and a subtle nod towards contemporary pop-surrealism. Her subjects look back through their distortion with vacancy and complacency -- perhaps an all-too familiar feeling on this Monday morning!
