"Deming King Harriman is a mix media and collage artist based in Miami Beach and New York City. Her work involves the subject of the surrealist narrative, a genera that allows the engagement of contemporary issues using both historical and fictional sources. She draws from archetypes and mysticism to fuel these narratives and characters, and how these themes play into the construction of identity. Throughout history cultures have employed the power of narrative to explain reality and the human. From religion, legends, and mythology to fairy tales, folklore, and song, we use storytelling as a tool to connect and explain the universe. Deming explores the line between the fantasy and reality of these concepts."
