Hart’s painting practice focuses tightly on the way a thing comes into being, like a rock or a snowball, compacted and varied. The objects orbit the material language of abstract painting and reveal the potential therein. They grow from themselves through a concentrated and slow gestation of material, finding a resting place somewhere between image and object in a kind of acknowledgement that painting is always both a portal and something you can bump up against. They become careful and slow meditations on form, completeness, and the link between looking and feeling.
Hart graduated in 2014 from the Cleveland Institute of Art where he studied painting. He is represented by Marquee Projects in Bellport, New York and Gray Contemporary in Houston, Texas. He is currently living and working out of Houston. (1992-?)
