Harriet White is a contemporary realist painter living and working in Bristol, UK. She creates large scale painterly interpretations of her own photographs stripped of context; snapshots from staged scenes accentuating ambiguity and suggesting an unclarified narrative.

Since lockdown she has embarked on a new body of work in response to the pandemic, specifically exploring the physical, aesthetic implications of isolation and the concept of the barrier, how it is shaping our experiences of our surroundings and each other..

She has exhibited regularly in the UK and the USA, has twice been selected for the BP Portrait Award and the Holburne Portrait Prize and was a shortlisted artist in the 2013 Threadneedle Prize for Figurative Art.
