Harriet Finck is a full-time artist, an adjunct professor of art, and an art center instructor. After graduating from Harvard and practicing as an architect for several years, she turned to collage and painting, eventually becoming a full-time artist exhibiting and selling her work.
Her paintings (mostly acrylic on paper) are abstract and her themes are the oneness of natural phenomena—similar patterns at the cellular and astronomical levels—and of fragmentation leading to wholeness.
She often works with mixed media such as foil scrolls and found object assemblages, and periodically turns to ancient Hebrew text as a motif, sometimes incorporating the words themselves, mining her intensive education in classical Jewish narratives for meaning.
Harriet has had residencies at the Rubin Frankel Art Gallery at the Boston University Hillel, at William Paterson University, with Art Kibbutz, and at Camp Ramah. She has had a one woman and duo shows at galleries in New York and New Jersey and participates in group exhibits annually.
Her work is in corporate collections and her studio is in Manufacturers Village, East Orange, New Jersey. Harriet holds a master’s degree in architecture from Harvard University.
