In this painting, Harrison takes us to a parallel world in which familiar objects are made strange by their skewed perspective and the paranormal narrative which has brought them together. Under a Samuel Palmer moon, perfectly framed within a star-drenched sky, a naked old-man, clearly identifiable as the ‘Dangly’ in the work’s title, sits quietly watching a river go by. Across from him stands a ginormous, Kafka-esque fly, dominating the foreground and lending a sense of foreboding to the otherwise tranquil composition. "In fairy stories," Harrison observes, the natural and supernatural go hand in hand." Beyond the lopsided strange house on the lake, we are encouraged to believe, is yet another world, a world of dreams and the dark side of the moon.
