About the Artist

Harrison Higgs (Vancouver) received 2008 GAP Award funding to cover costs of mounting/laminating expenses and final exhibition-scale prints to be displayed in 2008. The focus of the prints is to be interior and exterior representations of the body. Harrison’s work is a series of photographic-based images using a digital camera and scanner for input and a wide-format inkjet printer to output the prints. He uses macro photography to capture small constructions of gelatin and plastic forms. The gelatin structures obscure, distort, and collude with images on LCD monitors, yielding complex biomorphic forms.
