Claire Harris

Ask me anything   Legitimate artist

Big Hell (2013) is a visualisation of my small town shame. A small town upbringing can teach a pattern of pre-empting surveillance and failure, and can become a sense of shame that draws attention to the banal inadequacies that probably go unnoticed in a more anonymous setting.

(in a similar way deliberate self harm can seek an audience to render pain into noble suffering, while hoping to avoid vocalising unacknowledged discontents in an environment where those very discontents are seen as shameful)

Originally commissioned for ‘Through the Keyhole’ at Enjoy Gallery, Wellington New Zealand. enjoy.org.nz/node/2536

Here are my sketches from when I was playing around with the new pens. All of them were very quick,so I can’t wait until I have a chance to actually spend a little more time with the brush pens in particular. 

Also I should probably learn how to clean up stuff in photoshop.

YES I LIKE THESE.

Is it just me, or are 2 and 5 Reagan?

i would be a very easy person to buy a present for because i have very basic needs that i struggle to afford: rimmel pressed powder in translucent; medium-brown hair dye; lint rollers; socks. one of the things that upsets me the most is getting a really nice/expensive gift that you don’t want/won’t use (you can expect a lot more of this as i bloody loathe ‘the season’)

I’m either getting you socks or a chorus pedal. Your call.

all of the caring probably doesn’t count for anything unless the other person knows

Way to undermine my performance art body of work.
