ABOUT

Denja Harris is an artist from South Bay, San Diego, CA creating experimental fiber art and soft sculptures. Intentionally sourcing second-hand and dead-stock yarn, she creates layered, free form abstract works that take shape in an organic process. Her art practice is a form of healing and exploring self identity, vulnerability, and softness through the relationships of color, pattern and texture. Her work aims to visually communicate and gently remind self and viewer to stay soft in a world that wants to harden you.

Denja's work has been featured in solo exhibitons, group shows, workshops and demonstrations at San Diego City College, Mingei International Museum, Art Produce, Mortis Studio, and others.
