Looking at the soft and fluid portraits from the Henrietta Harris ‘Glorified Maggots’ collection, you get the cathartic feeling of impending gloom.

This is maybe due to the fact that most of the faces in the Henrietta Harris ‘Glorified Maggots’ collection are hidden. From ‘Mask’ to ‘Tim,’ which is a portrait of a boy seemingly suffocating himself with a pillow, the water color and oil painted pieces are inherently eerie.

Implications - Henrietta Harris does a great job of utilizing soft colors and pastels to ease the harshness of many of the images in 'Glorified Maggots,' and that is part of its charm. Take a look through the gallery and enter a portal into another world.
