About the work
Place: British Embassy, UK representation to the EU & UK delegation to NATO
In 2006 Harris commented on her work:
My paintings simultaneously reveal and conceal themselves. They operate in an arena somewhere between the abstract and representation…They aim to retain a sense of secrecy or privacy, an opaqueness that, although problematic and awkward, is both engaging and enjoyable.
