Neil Harrison

Works / Exhibitions / CV

The enigmatic geometric abstractions of Neil Harrison both stem and depart from painting tradition. Geometric abstraction originated as the vocabulary of idealistic early European modernists such as Malevich, El Lissitzky and Mondrian, who sought to develop a new visual language that they believed would express universal values. In the 1960s, North American abstractionists separated painting from value systems to assert the primacy of formal values – in the oft-quotes words of painter Frank Stella, “What you see is what you see.” Neil's work has been featured in Now Magazine, The Globe and Mail and Eye Weekly. 

b. 1981, Winnipeg, ON
