Helen Harrison



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.
