Irish contemporary artist Gordon Harris is internationally recognized and renowned for his high realism figurative work. He mainly uses the medium oil on board with gold and silver leaf.
Harris is a figurative artist with superb technique and a meticulous eye to detail, he infuses a harmony between the natural and conceptual to create works that are provocative and dramatic. He renders his subjects to a timeless matter.
He has adapted an old medium to the scrutiny of a new world. The surfaces of the oil paintings are often embellished with genuine gold and silver leaf. These precious metal leafed areas will shift with the intensity of light in a space or as one simply walks across the room.
Harris' works are included in many collections throughout the world including Ireland, U.K, Japan, U.S.A, London and Monaco.
