Daringly different

From Standing Room Only, 2:38 pm on 22 November 2015

When artists have made a name for themselves creating a distinctive kind of art, over decades, is it brave or reckless to go off in an entirely different direction?

Dunedin artist Jeffrey Harris is known for his big, brightly painted canvases.

Renaissance Days opens on the 28th of November.

Harris talks to Lynne Freeman about the works in his latest exhibition.
