ABOUT

Denja Harris is a fiber artist from South Bay, San Diego, CA. Her practice explores the world around her, self identity, the feeling of otherness, vulnerability and softness and the perception of hardness as a Black woman. Examining nostalgia and her inner child, she creates layered, free-form abstract patterns that take shape in an organic process. Her work aims to have the viewer take a step out of their reality and explore their own unconscious imagination and vulnerabilities. A gentle reminder to self and the viewer to stay soft in a world that wants to harden you.
