Harriet Links, an emerging artist based in Hobart, Tasmania, finds her creative impulse rooted in a boundless curiosity cultivated through interactions with people and the natural world. Her process is shaped from travel and an abundance of rich life experiences. Harriet seeks to unravel the complexities of her identity and make sense of the evolving world that surrounds her.

Her artistic exploration delves into the intricacies of the human condition, shedding light on what it means to be a woman in today’s dynamic and ever-changing global landscape. Harriet’s work is a visual testament to the ongoing journey of self-discovery.

In her current artistic practice, she is fascinated by the juxtaposition of stillness and movement, focus and distraction. A recurring motif within her work is the equine form, serving as a figurative reference that symbolises the struggle between the constrained and the out-of-control aspects within every individual. The horse, embodying strength, flow, positive energy, aspiration, peace, and escapism, becomes a powerful conduit for connectedness and personal growth.

The abstract elements in Harriet’s work mirror the frantic disconnect prevalent in modern lives, providing a tangible representation of the chaos inherent in the quest for balance and meaning. Her intention is to create a space for contemplation, inviting viewers to reflect on their own journey and discover resonance inside the shared human experience. This quiet space is represented by a broad use of negative space within her work.

Harriet uses acrylics, and mixed media on canvas to transform the equine figure into a colourful reflection of her inner self. Each artistic choice becomes a visual narrative, unveiling human desires, and the daily struggles that shape our existence.
