Annis Harrison is a multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works in London.Of Swedish and Jamaican heritage, she adopted the UK as home after attending St Martins Art College.Both in Sweden and in the UK, Annis has always occupied her own space, having a foot in more than one culture, more than one ethnicity, more than one language.

​Neither outside nor inside.

This series of paintings is about the space between dream and reality, or the time between night and day when slightly unbelievable things – almost magical realist things – can happen. But there is also a criticism of white, male, Eurocentric power structure – in the pest-like presence of the ‘Bunny Boys’, forever in the way. The paintings are suffused and softened with the language of humour, but a harder edge lies just beneath. I’m using the visual leagues of satire to express a criticism of the constant ‘taking.'

"Thank you for putting together your vision, bringing such fantastic
people together and for now adding to my home with such a fantastic
piece, for which I am very grateful!"

"Before Subject Matter I would never have thought about being an
art-buyer. It felt like a world I didn't understand and didn't belong
in. You have opened my eyes!"


Cheryl | London
