Caroline Jane Harris (b. 1987, UK) lives and works in London. Harris received her BA (Hons) Fine Art Printmaking from the University of Brighton in 2009, followed by her MA (Distinction) from City and Guilds of London Art School in 2015, where she was awarded the Norman Ackroyd Prize for Etching and the Roger de Grey Drawing Prize. She was subsequently invited to stay on as Research Printmaking Fellow at the same school (2016-18).
Harris creates meticulous hybrid artworks that traverse time, dimension and materiality. Central to each work, is a digital photograph that has been precisely cut-out by hand, translating immaterial image into lived experience for both artist and viewer in each iteration of Harris' evolving applied processes.
