About the artwork
In her sparse still life paintings, Porter strips away distractions to capture the glinting light as it falls on her subject and the surrounding surface.Strong emphasis is given to simple elegant composition and the subtle gradations of colour temperature.These narrow parameters enable her to concentrate on the play of light, shadow, focus and line — seeking their absence and presence within the frame. Porter studied at Central Saint Martins. She paints from life in her peaceful studio in Brixton. Her work literally reflects this tranquil sanctuary and escape from frenetic city life: the solitary object basking in uncluttered space.

About Harriet Porter

Harriet Porter lives and works in London and developed her practice at Central Saint Martins.

Since her studies, Harriet's work has developed and she has shown at a number of galleries and fairs including Black, White, Light, Dark at Cameron Contemporary Art in 2017 and Belgravia Contemporary Art Gallery in 2014.

Harriet uses natural light and the changing of seasons to create her sparse still life paintings. In capturing the glint of light in reflective surfaces Harriet's paintings create space of solitude with the object stading alone in a minimal environment.
