Dominic Harris at the Harrods Tea Room
Dominic Harris has taken over the iconic Tea Room at Harrods with digital artworks that bridge history and technology in an intertwined exploration of Harris’ most important subject: the incredible phenomena of nature.
The botanical themed Georgian Tea Room at Harrods reopened last month showcasing 20 works by Dominic Harris. Inspired and challenged by the technology fueled twenty-first century, Harris adopts certain roles – from a Victorian romanticist to a post-modern botanist – balancing fidelity to nature with a more whimsical depiction of reality in his works on view. Harris studies the growth cycles of plants and their flowering, seeing them as sentient creatures and imbuing them with personalities of their own. As a digital lepidopterist Harris is intent on cataloguing the appearance and mechanics of some of the world’s most fragile creatures.
