Jennifer Harrison

Works by Jennifer Harrison Works by Jennifer Harrison. "...Jennifer Harrison was born in Hamilton, Ontario. Harrison paints scenes of old houses crowded together on the streets of Toronto. Her fascination with houses can be traced back to her childhood when Harrison discovered that she cared more about dollhouses than dolls. She also loved to construct buildings with LEGO and other toys. In 1992 Harrison was accepted to the Ontario College of Art and Design to study in the Department of Communication and Design. Disenchanted, she left after one year. Harrison’s houses emerge from geometric shapes defined with planes of color and thickly textured surfaces. For Harrison, houses are symbols of status, wealth, and history. She comments that she is intrigued with buildings because they 'serve as containers for events and personalities.'"
