Rose Electra Harris captures the cool shade of the architecture surrounding a fountain in Trapani, a Sicilian fishing port on the meditation sea.
Describing her work, Rose says, "The room is an oasis and the items within it are what bring it to life." She imagines the dialogue that exists between space and furnishings or objects – chandeliers, lemon squeezers, chairs or a freestanding bath. She uses decorative motifs, intricate patterns and a vivid palette, to give the everyday significance.
Her works often appear dreamlike and surreal as she imbues the domestic spaces around her vivacity, colour and joyous pattern.
Working as a printmaker, predominantly in etching and screen-printing, Rose Electra Harris is based between her studio on Peckham and a printmaking studio in Stockwell, London.
Rose Electra Harris has a BA Hons in Printmaking from Brighton University and completed her Foundation at City and Guilds of London. She has been awarded the 2018 Bainbridge Open, The Art Academy Prize and in 2015 the University of Brighton Printmaking Award. Recent exhibitions include Miniatures, Partnership Editions, Benk and Bo, Woolwich Print Fair, William Yeoward, The Modern Society and The Difference Between Things at Blue Shop Cottage.
