ARTIST BIOGRAPHY & STATEMENT
Juliet R. Harrison is an award-winning photographer who received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1991. Specializing in traditional hand-printed Black and White photographs, Juliet Harrison captured images of horses for more than 20 years. Her work was shown in numerous exhibitions across the United States, and has been published in various magazines. Ms. Harrison has published several books of her work, including White Horses: From the Literal to The Sublime, Equiscape: A Modernist Nude and Track Life in Saratoga Springs and most recently Track Life: Images and Words. Recently her work has evolved to focus on the creation of mixed media assemblage sculptures using both organic and manmade materials.
“Sculptures from the Mythic Offerings series are assemblage works comprised of bone, antler, shell, rusted metal and other organic material. Their creation is my attempt to take elements of objects that are in some way related to the end of life and to give them a new existence, a new life, in a new form. To honor what they have been, where they came from. To offer the spirits of these objects a chance to go from death, back in to life, transformed.”
Ms. Harrison lives in the Red Hook (Hudson Valley), New York where she owns the Equis Art Gallery, which features equestrian themed art by contemporary artists from around the world.
