A tranquil still life painting of a single silver pot by artist Harriet Porter who uses a muted palette as she captures the subtleties of her subjects of highly polished silver.
Artist Harriet Porter strips away distractions to capture the glinting light as it falls on her subject and the surrounding surface, in her sparse still life paintings.
Strong emphasis is given to simple elegant composition and the subtle gradations of colour temperature. These narrow parameters enable her to concentrate on the play of light, shadow, focus and line – seeking their absence and presence within the frame. Porter studied at Central Saint Martins. She paints from life in her peaceful studio in Brixton. Her work literally reflects this tranquil sanctuary and escape from frenetic city life: the solitary object basking in uncluttered space.
