My collage practice has embraced the philosophy of “joy as resistance.”

It explores the abstraction of pop elements, themes & colors with, at times, a bit of a cubist slant. It relies heavily on overkill, chaos, and the occasional crayon.


C.P. Harrison was born and raised in Houston, Texas before making a home in Austin. He received his BFA from The University of Oklahoma in 1997. Harrison’s collage art has been in numerous group shows with his first solo show taking place in 2020. His work has appeared in the magazines Cut Me Up, Defaced and OLTRE.
