Chance Encounters Beyond the Peripheral
MFA Thesis exhibition
Exploring personal therapeutic modes of storytelling, Harris uses the medium of oil painting to discuss suicide. His visual language is filled with surreal landscapes and follows a semi-autobiographical character, named Happy.
The mythological journey of Happy extends into a multi-narrative comic book. Harris aims to accessibly approach the topic of suicide through an archetypal lens, exploring the many complexities of this difficult subject. The artist offers: “if we can speak about suicide more openly, perhaps those who experience ideations might feel safer and more compelled to come forward and seek help.”
