Statement and Bio

STATEMENT

Kathryn Hart’s art reflects the human condition — all of its crags, crevices, revelations and secrets — and her belief in an endless ability to rise from the ashes.

 Her mixed media works seep with raw, personal history, but the stories are timelessly relevant. They exude a sense of loss, longing and an ultimate conviction in renewal.  Hart’s current work searches for the unswayable feminine identity and its philosophical essence amid the influences of culture, heritage and personal experience.

 Hart’s paintings are mired in matter, their power emanating from their very physical palpability and her unique way of imbuing the actual with its own transcendent mystery.    Humanoid-like beings are often sculpted and sutured into a surface smeared with sensuously tactile impasto, clotted paint and found objects.  Hart desanctifies the traditional plane surface with construction and deconstruction so that the work becomes an entity, embryonic and glistening, oddly elegant with vulnerability and an unapologetic presence.  Rips, tears and holes in the support incorporate the surrounding environment into the very composition. Uncensored materials are exploited to their full extent, even in the natural state for Hart believes in the inherent truth and power of the raw materials.

As the daughter of a plastic surgeon, suturing, stitching, tugging together and pulling apart come naturally to Hart for she often observed her father’s surgeries, watching him deftly place sutures to heal and those to conceal the underbelly.   However, Hart’s aim is not to veil what lies beneath the skin but to reveal it.
