Harry Underwood

Harry Underwood was born and raised in the farming community of Homestead, FL. After leaving high school in 1986, he worked a variety of odd jobs in the construction and service industries. Prior to settling in Tennessee, Harry lived and worked in Miami and New Orleans.

Harry is a self taught artist. He has shown in a handful of galleries in Nashville, as well as a few other scattered places around country. With an eye for the subtleties of life, Harry’s work reads like a Polaroid image wrapped in a dime store candy wrapper. His characters are sometimes happy, sometimes haunting. The landscapes, like movie sets, isolate the characters into surreal moments presented in snapshot form. His works are painted on wood panels, a tactile medium sharing its existence with handmade drug store signs and NEHI bottle cutouts.
