Over the course of the last twenty-five years David Harrison has created a body of work unique in contemporary British art, characterized by wit, a playful love of contradiction and quiet erudition. Working in two and three dimensions, the artist's paintings, sculptures, and collages transform the natural and man-made worlds into mythical settings in which alarming, magical, and incongruous narratives unfold. The book includes an overview of Harrison's work to date, an introduction by architectural historian Lucinda Lambton, an interview with the artist conducted by his renowned contemporary Peter Doig, and a study of his motifs and methods by curator Alistair Robinson.
