Jan Harrison

About the Artist

Jan Harrison is an American painter and sculptor whose work, which primarily features animal imagery, centers on the animal nature as it relates to human existence and the collective psyche. Her art is informed by the philosophy of deep ecology.  A monograph detailing her work describes it as “excavat(ing) the arcane kingdom of the human psyche, so long tyrannized by the repressive and oppressive forces of socialization.” She has exhibited widely in the United States and abroad. Harrison speaks and sings in a language, Animal Tongues, which she has performed with her visual art.
