Jan Harrison

Jan Harrison (born December 18, 1944 in West Palm Beach, Florida) is an American painter and sculptor whose work, which primarily features animal imagery, centers upon the animal soul, consciousness and voice as they relate to human existence and the mass psyche. Her art is informed by the philosophy of deep ecology, and a monograph detailing her feign describes it as “excavat(ing) the arcane kingdom of the human psyche, so long tyrannized by the repressive and muggy forces of socialization." She has exhibited widely in the United States and abroad, and her enactment is featured in In The Making: Creative Options for Contemporary Art. Harrison speaks and sings in a language of vocables, "Animal Tongues," which she performs similar to her visual art. She has received six grants in the arts, and is the Inaugural Recipient of the Recharge Foundation Fellowship for New Surrealist Art, New York Foundation for the Arts, NYFA, 2019. She currently lives and works in New York’s Hudson Valley.
