Andrew Pierre Hart lives and works in London. He explores the symbiotic relationship between sound and painting through ongoing rhythmic research and play between improvised and spontaneous generative processes. His practice questions the many formalities and dialogues around painting.

His work explores somatic responses to ideas relating to sound, including but not limited to acoustic levitation, spatialisation, the human as a vessel of sound and the creation of physical and theoretical space. Deeply influenced by music, Hart’s work is a renegotiation of the visual language and legacies of Western abstraction, probing connections between the phenomena, language and representation of sound in painting. Recent exhibitions include: Mixing It Up: Painting Today, Hayward Gallery, London (2021); The Listening Sweet, Tiwani Contemporary, London (2021); and Run the Box, A Solo Show by Andrew Hart, Guts Gallery, London (2020). Hart holds a MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art (2019) and BA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Arts (2017). He is a recipient of the ArtAngel Thinking Time Award (2020) and Tiffany & Co. x Outset Studiomakers Prize (2019).
