About Harry Kent

i live and paint in Tasmania, the island down under the Land Downunder

my current interest lies in expressive mark-making in portrait painting . i am finding a rich vein in the literature on material thinking - the agency of media and notion co-responsibility in creative practice deriving from the thinking of Heidegger

recent work has been a series of self portraits exploring the emotions associated with aging and entering old age . here i have sought to express the grief over progressively failing physical and mental powers, grief over the loss of parents, and the grief over one's own mortality . currently i am working on the emotionally recollected family based on old family snaps and recollections from childhood

presently half way through a Masters of Contemporary Arts degree
