After over two decades as professor of visual culture and media in Australia, England, & the US., and well-known for his theories of postmodernity & the image, Dan Harries decided to translate his teachings into practice and pursue his artistic projects full-time. In 2008, he established his studio, Harries + Fayé, in Hollywood's historic Artisan's Patio. His limited series photographs explore and expand these theories of intertextuality & ambiguity in the realm of material aesthetics.

My work starts with the line that exists between the concrete and the abstract. What's depicted - a rusting fuse box, a peeling wall, a blistered water tower - is discovered later, after color, shape, texture, and pattern resolve themselves, perhaps to avoid revealing the story's dénouement. This process of de-contextualizing the image's source and its eventual re-contextualization in terms of formal, figurative, and social aspects lies at the center of my on-going photographic projects.

The island of Kauai as seen through its fences and roofs – the vibrancy of colors, the warmth of shadows, and the constant tension between inflexible crimps and decaying surfaces.
