Harnett’s work is inspired by films. She makes small, intricately detailed pencil drawings which capture fleeting moments of drama, suspense or beauty. When released from the original context of the film that inspired them, the drawings each tell a story of their own. In 2007 Harnett was selected for the Contemporary Art Society’s ARTfutures at Bloomberg Space and exhibited at The Aspect Prize at The Paisley Museum.
