In Untitled (Judith) No. 8, the misery-wracked figures remain separate, the dinghies have no oars, a threatening bird flies across the sky, and the blocks of colour speak of the loss of integration. Like other works by Jeffrey Harris, it is—to use Michael Dunn’s words—suggestive of a journey that could be taken together but which appears more as a solitary path for the male artist figure.
