Steve Harris was born in Dunedin in 1953 and is a self taught artist. He moved to Australia in 1991.
Harris is well known for his impeccably painted still life compositions. He is the master of understated realism which evokes its own sense of atmosphere and contemplative mood. His stunning skill in depicting light, creates work with a magnified sense stillness in ‘a moment in time’ which has a spiritual quality that takes the viewer by surprise.
