In Harper’s installation Loo-Loo Field, hundreds of hand-cut neon vinyl petals suspend in the air to form a cloud-like cluster. As light passes through the petals, their edges reveal bright neon colors. Using overpowering color, inviting textures and playful forms, Harper’s work acts as a portal into a new invented world fueled by childhood fantasy.

Harper received an undergraduate degree in Art & Technology from the Ohio State University in 2009 and an MFA from Penn State University in 2013. This year, she attended the Women’s Studio Workshop in March 2016 and completed a 200-square-foot glass mural for the Goodale Parking Garage. She has had recent solo exhibitions at Otterbein Univeristy, University of Kentucky, Front/Space Gallery & Museum (Kansas City, MO), and Sean Christopher Gallery.
