James Harney Rooftop Garden Exhibition



WHEN: 28 Mar 2017 – 22 Dec 2017


The installation draws inspiration from the leaf structures, colours and movement of the plants found in the 107 rooftop garden. The outcome was influenced by Matisse's cut-out paper artworks and the paintings of Charles Thomas O'Neil, both of whom I’m currently obsessed with at the moment.

James Harney is a Sydney based graphic designer and artist.
