Harrison’s sculpture depends on the relentless inquiry and surveillance of the human form. This investigation extends well beyond the physical torsions that the body can be put under, beyond the sensuality and grace that the human body can transmit. Harrison’s extraordinary sculptures say much about the condition of the psyche whilst sidestepping overwrought emotional narratives by giving each of his figures a quiet, contained energy.
His capacity to make is unquestioned but it is in his extraordinary observation and treatment of the junctions where tension and compression in the body are evident that are so compelling.
