Intrigued by wood, palm fronds and found objects, Harrison
shapes graceful sculptures that reveal the texture and the
intrinsic beauty of nature’s creations. In “King
and Queen of the Island,” she utilizes bamboo, bone
and the rare cohune palm to represent the strength of the
masculine and feminine. The sculptures are set on coral bases,
echoing the rock foundation of Key West. Raw elements that
were once alive are given a new life in a different context,
providing the viewer a space in time where to worship what
surrounds and sustains us. Harrison is the owner of Harrison
Gallery in Key West, Florida.
