Mal Harry was born on Whadjuk land (Perth) in Western Australia, where he continues to be based.
His work questions how he observes and processes information and more broadly how this connects to the experiences of all humans – negotiating the cultural systems we might naturally take for granted. Harry’s work interrogates the play between an individual’s core values and the role of compromise in order to navigate the complexities of contemporary life.

Harry uses a highly systematised process of layering paint, often on an atomised grid of panels. His new exhibition Filter Process features large scale portraits of famous people. Referencing his trove of collected photographs and film stills, he investigates his own personal schema and more specifically, the mental structure of preconceived ideas that he uses to organise relationships with people he knows, through the stories and images of people he does not know.

This will be his second solo exhibition following BORDERS OF ORDER (Sept 2021) which sold out.
