In this piece by Drew Harris, there is a portrayal of tranquillity and it showcases warmer shades of brown and light blue, colours that are out of his comfort zone.
“I have extended beyond my ‘colour comfort level’ and have been introducing warmer shades of red, orange, light blue and yellow, which I see as fresh, and I might add, reflect where I am as an artist in this stage of my career and life. One may say, my colours reflect a certain degree of quiet confidence, less stark, less aggressive use of hard elements.”
Toronto-born abstract artist Drew Harris, 58 has been living in Kuala Lumpur and Penang for the past two decades and has been exhibiting periodically over the years. The Malaysian-based Canadian studied graphic design and fine arts for six years at college and started his career as a graphic designer in Toronto.
