Harlesden High Street presents Savannah Marie Harris's debut - Looking Into The Shimmer. This solo exhibition delves into being without an agenda, the intention is to consider what does the antagonist truly remember.

Looking into the Shimmer will be on display at 96 Chalton Street, NW1 1HJ from 4th - 21st of February 2023. It will immediately continue its presence at Harlesden High Street, NW10 4NJ from the 24th of February 2023 - 18 March 2023.

Savannah Marie captures a space of complexity where the audience rifles through their own remembrance as they take the journey through the carved and layered painting before them.

There is a conversational harmony between Savannah Marie and the canvas as oil is applied and eroded in the same breath.

Indulging in an intuitive art practice leads the current Royal College of Art (2021-2023)  attendee, into paths of the familiar and nostalgic,  with only the fluid intentions to feel. Memory is dared to annihilate the decision making based on future brush strokes, instead Savannah Marie audaciously invites her mind to places she doesn't recollect yet has emotionally and spiritually been before.

The exhibition will be open by appointment

Savannah Harris (b. 1999) practice can be read as a stream of consciousness that ebbs and flows into complex environments. Intuitively entangled with colours, light and textures. The act of painting becomes performative as she continuously deconstructs the space unravelling in the moment. Absorbed in the process vibrant colours bleed through, large gestural strokes dilute into muddy stains and what is left is remnants of collapsing surfaces.
