Harriet Gillett

Biography

Harriet Gillet is a fine art graduate from City and Guilds of London Art School. She creates paintings and prints which playfully circulate around themes of identity, surveillance, and our relationship with myths and nature. Interested in the fluidity of storytelling, she works from a combination of observational drawing and memory, blending past, present and the imagined to create new narratives. Her influences range from literary to art historical references, looking to marry archaic myths and folklore with the contemporary, and visually blur the lines between memory and reality. Gillett works in a variety of experimental mediums and processes, often bringing together seemingly juxtaposing materials such as layering murky oil over acidic spray paint, to create a visual tension. Often grounded in everyday situations, she infuses elements of surrealism like humour and fantasy to result in works that are dream-like in their aesthetic.
