As well as working with the physical medium of paint, Harriet utilises photography in her artistic practice. Immersed in the emotion, energy, beauty and truth of an event, a camera records the fleeting moments that can later stand alone as records of precious memories, and which can also be distilled to inform future paintings. The imperfect accidents that occur within the body of a camera — whether analogue or digital — can seep into the texture of a painting.
