The Art of John Harris
There are a lot of artists out there to appreciate, but you can’t replace those moments when you know you’ve found a favorite. A kindred spirit. That’s how I felt when I discovered the work of John Harris.
When I look at his paintings, I feel the 80’s, I see outer space, and I want to love nerdy things.
When Harris was asked about the appeal in depicting space, he responded:
“I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t physically and mentally stirred by ‘the vast’. I always felt it as a sensation in the body. Mentally, I associated it with the future. It filled me with electricity. This energy sparked off imagery in my mind, which I wanted to share.”
Yes. Here is an exemplar SPACE-O-RAMA spirit. And he creates as he considers deep space. Like a boss.
Take time to consider it and see what happens.
