Marie Harnett, Artist, Rising Star
The Alan Cristea gallery in Cork Street has an exhibition of some eighty extraordinarily fine pencil drawings by Marie Harnett inspired by film stills, including depictions of Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Keira Knightley. As part of her technique Marie uses high magnification head glasses to produce these drawings.
All these images are from the film ‘Black Swan’.
We’ll keep an eye on this young artist, we think she’ll go far. It might just be a good time to invest in a picture or two. They had nearly sold out on 8 April, so better get a move on if you would like one of them. The show is on until 21 April. Catch it if you can.
