Whit Harris

Whit Harris is a multi-disciplinary artist working across drawing, painting, and ceramics. Her work renders a dissolute experience of human bodies through fluid, disjointed anatomies. Figures stretch, recline, wriggle, twerk, and otherwise contort themselves in exaggerated expressions that oscillate between naturalistic and cartoonish, summoning the DuBoisian premise of “double consciousness” that underlies contemporary Black identity. These reinvented bodies become metaphors for the artist’s psychological adaptation to unpredictable and hostile environments borne out of anti-Black social structures and subversive totems of political resistance.
