Book preview:

Introduction:

Harry was painting the nude in a way that was unique and theatrical and many of his early compositions had that otherworldly quality, sometimes even carrying titles drawn from the classics, such as Diane and Actaeon or Ganymede. I also vividly remember the exhibitions I saw at Chapter Arts Centre in the late seventies because I had never seen such a unique take on still life; upturned tables casting shadows on walls, torn pieces of cardboard and string and the meticulous observation of utilitarian objects such as old box cameras and canvas wig blocks making the viewer see them in a completely different way.

I have used the word theatrical, and I am sure that I was drawn to his work not only because of the flawless painting technique but because to my eyes so much of it was theatre and composed to lead the viewer into this very private world.
