About 

 

Rose Electra Harris (b.1991) is a London-based printmaker and painter. Having completed a degree in printmaking at the University of Brighton in 2015, she now works from her studio in south London.  
 
Rose uses her work to explore interior space, using the obscure and everyday objects to which she’s drawn to create her still lifes. Fascinated by colour, line, shape, texture and pattern, Rose places these objects – some from memory, some imagined, some collected over time – in her roomscapes, playing around with them until she finds the perfect composition, always in search of balance and harmony. 
Rose reimagines the colourful dialogue that exists between space and furnishings, as interested in the negative space between objects as she is in the objects themselves. She isn’t concerned with portraying objects exactly as they are, but more how they make her feel, making use of a singularly distorted, ever so slightly off-kilter, perspective to do so. To her, a room is an oasis and the things within it are what bring it to life.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 

All three works are inspired by my own studio, where I house collected objects or pieces of furniture from my childhood, like my big red bed.
