About the Work
"Throughout the 1970s, Jeffery Harris successfully called on his technical skill and abilities in drawing highly detailed, complex images which emphasised line rather than tone to produce an outstanding body of etchings. Here, Harris readily replaced the sharpened pencil lead with the keenly honed etching needle to achieve similar finely detailed lines. Works such as this highlight Harris’ interest in psychological, dreamlike subject matter.
