Biography

Harriet Gillett (b. 1995, England) is a London-based painter and printmaker, whose colourful and fluid works explore aspects of contradiction within memory and nostalgia, and offer 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. She employs a variety of materials and processes, often bringing together seemingly opposing elements in order to playfully blur the lines between the traditional or the contemporary, abstraction and figuration, dream or reality. This year she recieved her Graduate Diploma in Fine Art at City and Guilds of London Arts School, after graduating from Edinburgh University with a BA in English Literature in 2017. She was recently shortlisted for the Ingram prize and exhibited work with Purslane Art and Unit 1 Gallery Workshop. Harriet lives and works in London, UK.
