However, John Harris completely disagrees to the point of his styling. He explains to this point as, “It always puzzles me when this issue of style comes up, because I don’t consciously have a style. This is not being disingenuous. I simply try to paint what is in my mind’s eye. If people recognize my style, maybe what they are seeing is simply a feeling or vision that is personal to me. Maybe that is why it appears to withstand fashion — because it isn’t a fashion. There’s a future out there, unknowable, but thrilling. After all this time, I still feel it.”

It was the zeitgeist and art colleges brewed it.”
