Marie Harnett @ Alan Cristea Gallery

November 22, 2017 - January 6, 2018

A major exhibition of new works by British artist Marie Harnett, celebrating fleeting moments of drama, beauty and sus­pense from contemporary film is opening soon.  Still includes several new series of drawings and prints by Harnett who is known for her highly detailed, meticulous drawings, derived from film stills.

Harnett comments, “My interest lies in transforming a digital split second and slowly making it a tangible. By removing colour and taking the still out of its narrative context, I am able to assign the image its own autonomy. Exploring these intricate details allows me to become completely absorbed in the process.

Harnett’s skilful draughtsmanship and attention to detail leads to instant recognition of familiar cinema stars. These new works include portraits of Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Michael Fassbender, and Henry Cavill amongst many others.
