Bradley Hart’s Injected Bubble Wrap at Cavalier

I’ve seen Bradley Hart’s incredible paint-injected bubblewrap pieces before, but his forthcoming show at Cavalier Gallery pushes this medium to the limit. For the exhibition, Hart has gone beyond process, and has created a second set of “impressions,” made from the excess paint that leaks out of each bubble as he injects it. They are gorgeous. The show opens next week, on May 7.

Cavalier Gallery is pleased to present ‘The Masters Interpreted: Injections and Impressions by Bradley Hart, a solo exhibition by the artist at Project 3W57 with an opening Wednesday May 7th from 6-8 PM.

Regarded as, “an artist worth watching out for”, Hart’s use of bubble wrap as a medium make his some of the most unique works available today.  His innovative method demands painstaking detail as each bubble is carefully injected with a syringe filled with acrylic paint.  The result is large-scale, pixilated images that reference the digital platform and the virtual way we live our lives.

In today’s society we collect and share our lives online through various technological platforms.  We share thoughts, ‘statuses’ and most importantly our images, all of which are presented as the result of a unique combination of 1s and 0s that are the basis for all digital code.  Hart envisions each bubble is representative of this code.  It is this notion that inspired his new series, reimagining historical paintings by the masters.

The Masters Interpreted features iconic works such as Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with the Pearl Earring, and Vincent van Gogh’s Self Portrait with Gray Felt Hat.  Each is a familiar image, however, most audiences have never interacted with the paintings in person but rather through a computer screen or monitor.  Seeing digital replications through a screen breaks down these famous paintings into the same pattern of 1s and 0s.  By using this unique medium and technique, Hart is reimagining these Master works by turning them into something modern and fresh.

Hart’s work has grabbed the attention of the art world with features at major art fairs in Miami, Los Angeles, New York City and Toronto.  He is collected throughout the United States and Internationally.  His work has been featured on Yahoo’s This Could be Big Blog and was recently was the focus of a feature on Reuters.  The artist lives and works in New York City.
