The heart of Kathryn Hart’s work is deeply personal but the stories are timelessly relevant. Hart’s iterative process of construction and deconstruction reveals the painting’s history, the artist’s journey and her ultimate belief in renewal. What is taken away leaves a footprint, contributing to the whole as much as what remains.
Uncensored methods and use of materials gives an intriguing, funky element. The work’s tactility is key to its expression. Like a sculptor, Hart balances the painting’s surface as much by touch as its visual qualities. Emerging figures through the thick, rugged surfaces enhance the sense of a submerged narrative that lends Hart’s work much of its mystery, depth, and poetry.
