Harriet Gillett

(b 1995United Kingdom. Lives and works in London)

Harriet Gillett is a London-based painter and printmaker, whose colourful and fluid works explore aspects of contradiction within memory and nostalgia, offering an element of escapism. Working from a combination of observational drawing and imagination, she creates composite imagery that is rooted in personal experience and takes further inspiration from literature, music, folklore and art history. Gillet employs a variety of materials and processes, often bringing together seemingly opposing elements in order to playfully blur the lines between the traditional and the contemporary, abstraction and figuration, dream or reality.
