Trails of Red & Green was painted during a three-month-long artist residency program, title 'Physical Mindfulness of Painting' at Mundaring Arts Centre (MAC). Harrison See explored a deeper appreciation of the physical act of painting by constructing a series of weighted brushes. These brushes aimed to enhance See's mindfulness of his movements and markmaking; the work itself is a response to the surrounding Mundaring landscape.

Urban Tree is the fourth solo exhibition by artist Harrison See and represents a painted investigation of the flora within Perth’s urban spaces. Borrowing from real sites in and around Northbridge, See has created fictional landscapes that play with the relationship between natural and man-made features. These scenes exaggerate light and composition of existing spaces, while also removing the human figure to offer a mix of serenity and tension. See’s work is in part a response to his experience of returning home after an extended stay overseas, having a sudden awareness of the relatively small number of trees in Perth’s built up areas.

Harrison See’s artworks respond to the unsustainable use of the world’s natural resources with reference to the cross-cultural understanding between Heaven & Earth. These painted and sculptural works speak to the practice of extracting materials from one part of the earth in order to process them in the other; not-unlike the relationship shared between China’s manufacturing capacity and Australia’s mining industry. This need to draw from ‘the old’ that lies below, in order to build upwards with ‘the new’, has inspired a narrative of precarious towers ascending away from their crumbling foundations.
