Artist Statement ARTIST STATEMENT AND BIOGRAPHY My name is Zeidy Alejandra Harris, I’m a native of Bogota Colombia. I have lived in the USA for the last 18 years. I have studied art at The Glassell School of Arts continuously since 2011. In my life making art is about being transferred to a world of shapes, colors, textures, lights and shadows. While putting all of these elements together I lose the sense of time. My work is a complex puzzle until is finished. I come back to real time when I can see the results. Each one of my paintings consist of a number of levels to build a relationship between the back and the foregrounds as well as all of the components in the layout to find the right balance. During the research and production of a new piece, I find ideas that inspire me, and lead me to a new body of work. When I paint I feel that I’m opening my soul to the viewer, sharing in a way my view and perception of the world.
