Looking toward the future of painting, Wyecliffe Galleries came across the works of Harriet Hoult in her South London studio. Presented in her signature minimalist white frames, the edges of every work were left raw and exposed to unveil the extent of the craftsmanship involved in every piece. Signed with a stylish HH, the artist represents a refreshing perspective on contemporary abstract painting, with impressive ambition to drive forward the genre to new and unexpected places.
Juxtaposing colour, line and form, Hoult works the materials until her paper appears to be encased with her thoughts. Abstract art at it’s very best; richly evolved in acrylic and mixed media the overall impression may be untamed, though delve deeper and delicacy unveils itself. Softly drawn pencil lines infer windows and paths delicately mapping fragments of little cities. Hoult seeks to pour her experience of place and time into a visual symphony; staccato lines support pianissimo colour.
