Joseph Hart on Sunday-S
Joseph Hart’s work is a collision of choreographed and happenstance mark-making, ferocious editing and reinvention. Utilizing the tenets of drawing and painting, Hart’s process is structured around cursory gestures: errant dashes, ticks, scrawls, swoops and zigzags. This set of preliminary and exploratory maneuvers are then built upon, reconfigured or impulsively edited out until a composition begins to emerge. The results are abrupt but retain a compelling and provocative elegance. Text And Images From Halsey McKay gallery
