We are proud to present a truly unique collaboration between Dominic Harris and Oliver Smart. Their first encounter in 2014 – where they talked initially about their respective works interrogating nature and movement – developed into one of the most ambitious collaborations either artist had ever undertaken: creating a puppet butterfly.
On the occasion of Art New York 2017, the Huffington Post wrote an article about the fair. Dominic Harris’ Bloomed is mentioned.
Dominic Harris employs technology to construct personal interpretations of our natural environment, using a highly skilled and innovative format of images that at first may seem like permanent still-lifes, until you get close up and personal. In this salon style installation of various flower bouquets handsomely framed in blackened aluminum, assisted by custom electronics that make the plants gently move, and software that utilize industrial LCD screens as a substitute for canvas, the artist presents an intriguing slant on a traditional still-life subject matter.
