Statement

Look in to the art of Robert D. Harris. The viewer is involuntarily drawn to his diverse artistic style- a fusion of contemporary concepts with figurative images.  His unique method of combining modern art with historically recognizable styles, such as cubism and surrealism, is relatable without being predictable. The potential of crossing this fine line is what makes Harris not only a fine artist, but also a conceptual artist.

Harris derives inspiration from spiritual energy, nature, traditional art, music and most significantly, humanity. He takes what lies beneath the human facade and creates a non-linear, authentic reality.  This reality taps into raw emotions inherent in all human beings, though often hidden behind societal-influenced masks. Removing the mask and exposing truth is more than art, it is a movement.

Every form of artistic expression is a direct representation of human existence.  The raw emotion, thought processes, and consequences endured by ordinary people profoundly connects the community. The art movement not only exposes this connection, it embraces it; it encourages self-examination in a selfless context.

Harris’ work has progressed into distinguished and highly recognizable pieces that are displayed in public and private collections worldwide. Additionally, he serves as a visual DJ though live art performances at special events including, but not limited to: wine tasting parties, celebrity concerts, art store openings, non-profit fundraisers, night club promotions, and business gatherings.
