(Fear Of Missing Out)
Harman’s graphic novel ‘Alice in Tartland" traces a young girl's journey into carnal knowledge and the conflicting messages that she receives from the Duchess, her body and the examples set by other characters. Alice is often confused and certainly dismayed and indignant. What is she to think and how is she to behave?
‘Fear of Missing Out’ is a collection of artworks in clay and paint that explores ideas of adolescent identity. FOMO uses the symbols of text communication, the language of posing ( non- verbal language) which adolescents use to communicate with each other
There are continuing references to Alice, and her familiar story remains as the engaging device to explore this contemporary theme.
A playful tableau of images and symbols continues to link Harman’s themes. The fecund mushrooms and puffed sleeves, the white boots of tarts and the interplay of love and lust all vie for the limelight in these scenes.
The proposed exhibition would feature:
• up to twelve acrylic/oil paintings ranging in size from 20x20cm to 40x60 cm
• ceramic sculptures
• ceramic relief sculptures exhibited on wall
• a small ceramic installation of mushrooms and rabbits on chairs
• an interactive installation of text – ceramic letters will be provided and exhibition audience may play with making text acronyms and words.
