About the Artist

Teetering on the cusp of ordinary perception, David Harrison’s paintings, drawings and sculptures present a world where the natural and supernatural go hand in hand. Harrison's works expand the languages of contemporary painting and sculpture, drawing into play parts of the culture which are forgotten, buried, discarded or disregarded. The artist employs all that has lain outside of the mainstream of modern art – age-old symbols and fanciful myth, irrational beliefs, traditional genres like landscape, exuberant sexuality, barbed wit, and wonder at the natural world – in order to speak vividly about our own time, and to revivify the disciplines of painting and sculpture.

How We Met: David Harrison and Lucinda Lambton

'Like me, Lucinda's a fan of the macabre. She was doing a book about shrines and a mutual friend told her I had a shrine to my poodle. So she came to my council flat in Bow, and I nearly killed her, as I was trying to get rid of my 1950s leopard-skin three-piece suite from the fourth floor; I threw it over the balcony just as she arrived.

 

She was wild and excitable, and a slight lunatic, but she exuded warmth and it was love at first sight. As I never had a TV I'd never heard of her. And though she's got an elegant way of talking – she is a Lady – the rest of her is so down to earth that it's no barrier. She did the filming and the interview but afterwards she stayed in my flat for ages. She asked if I'd do her lighting for her, so I joined her going around the country taking photos of fantastic places; I got a real insider view of things…'
