Opening Friday, January 24th at ROMER YOUNG GALLERY, San Francisco is “Excavator,” a solo exhibition by Joseph Hart. Inspired by relics from Hart’s youth, this new body of work suggests a surrender, or homage, to change. A deconstructed image of an excavator (from an old T-shirt) combined with Hart’s symbolic alphabet, presents the viewer with a restrained yet provocative series. “Excavator” includes new paintings, works on paper, and sculpture alongside a selection of experimental chromogenic print pieces. These unique prints are made from drawings that have been scanned and digitally altered. While Hart’s work typically underscores surface treatment, touch and texture, these components are eliminated within the c-prints, shifting the primary focus towards pure mark, edge and gesture.


Opening Reception: Friday, January 24th, 2014. 6-9pm.


“Excavator” is on view through February 22nd, 2014.
