Buổi triển lãm tranh họa sĩ Harriet Lee Merrion

"Harriet's distinct, beautiful illustrations have the feeling of being despatched from the world of sleep. Here is a place where dreams rule, metaphors mix and words come second to images. Inner life and human consciousness are favourite subjects. Tight, controlled lines and so many somnambulant characters.

 The first solo exhibition of Harriet Lee-Merrion's illustrations is be hosted from May 6 to May 11, by PAPER Arts, 51 - 53 Merchant St, BS1 3EE Bristol, UK

Harriet's distinct, beautiful illustrations have the feeling of being despatched from the world of sleep. Here is a place where dreams rule, metaphors mix and words come second to images. Inner life and human consciousness are favourite subjects. Tight, controlled lines and so many somnambulant characters.

Best of all, she doesn't take her protagonists too seriously, frequently painting them into the kind of awkward situation that only our unconsciousness would consider to be a good idea. A woman paints hairs on her bare legs; another kisses a boy balloon. Still a third cuts the locks off a mannequins wig, sitting alone in an empty room. This is work that repays close attention."
