Andrew Pierre Hart
Andrew Pierre Hart explores the symbiotic relationship between sound and painting through ongoing rhythmic research and play between improvised and spontaneous generative processes. The artist’s practice questions the many formalities and dialogues around painting. His works explore somatic responses to ideas relating to sound including but not limited to acoustic levitation, spatialization, the human as a vessel of sound and the creation of physical and theoretical space. Deeply influenced by music, Hart’s work is a renegotiation of the visual language and legacies of Western abstraction, probing connections between the phenomena, language and representation of sound in painting.
Andrew Pierre Hart lives and works in London. He holds a MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art (2019) and BA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Arts (2017). He is a recipient of the ArtAngel 'Thinking Time' Award (2020) and Tiffany & Co. x Outset Studiomakers Prize (2019). Recent exhibitions include Collective Intimacies at Theaster Gates’ 'Black Image Corporation, 180 The Strand, London (2019); Royal College of Art Graduate Show (2019).
