Stuart Hartley

Hartley's practice sits between painting and sculpture with its genesis lying in the structure and event that conflate to produce a painting. A dialogue between surface and support is created that challenges the historical singular and frontal approach to painting. The space the work creates and its migration into the space of other mediums, begins to shift the works emphasis from a two-dimensional surface into an environment that engages the viewer both visually and physically. As a result, perceptions, time, space and event become involved with the work questioning the boundaries and elements that are evident within painting.
