Card cover with dust jacket

Swamps are darkly fertile places where death and life co-exist, and where new life emerges from the traces of the old.

New Zealand-born artist Brent Harris is a leading, high-profile contemporary artist in Australia. 

Harris’s art explores uneasy psychological states and childhood trauma. He uses automatic drawing – a way of working that allows the subconscious to rise to the surface – as his starting point to create grotesque, elegant and immediately engaging works of art.

In this beautifully designed catalogue, leading art writers Lara Strongman, Robert Leonard and Justin Paton introduce this remarkable artist to NZ audiences for the first time.
