Marie Harnett

Split-second moments from a moving image become carefully rendered in pencil on paper in the work of Marie Harnett. The artist searches through films frame by frame to find a scene that was only ever meant to be glimpsed in motion, and then spends weeks or months making these passing instants into something permanent.
