Check out Brian Hart’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brian Hart.

Brian, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I will do my best to be as honest as possible because my story is not super unique nor is it impressive. I am where I am today from the benefit of a lot of different circumstances that I cannot claim I had anything to do with. I am from a white upper-middle-class family that gave me the opportunity and means to explore my interest in art from a very early age, I am sure there are many other artists who did not have that experience and have had to overcome much bigger hurdles to get to where they are today. I know that my perseverance and drive to always find a way to have the means to make my art pales in comparison to their stories… I am thankful for the fact that the positivity and support I try to give out means that I have a whole bunch of people that want to see me succeed including my parents, my partner, my friends, and other artists.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My art is a reaction to everything I see and feel every day. Art for me is my release and my therapy. I hope people are drawn to it because it is beautiful and then spend the time deciphering it in their own way. I work on many pieces at a time, layering many, many different images on top of each other until I start to start to make connections between them all. Sometimes, I work on a series of paintings and don’t know what they all mean until the first one is done. It is impulsive because that is how I feel about my need to create. Not everyone will feel exactly what I am feeling as there is no exact “message.” I am documenting what I am feeling at the time on multiple pieces over an extended duration. Sometimes, they are all related to a theme but not always, but they are always ambiguous and loaded with symbolism for the viewer.

How can artists connect with other artists?
If you went to school with other artists don’t be afraid to reach out! If you have an artist organization in your area, join it! Go to openings, talk to old teachers, go online and join groups. Lots of artists out there, lots of them are in the same boat…

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I am participating in Brickbottom Open Studios 2018, the 30th anniversary of one of the last stalwarts of artist communities in Somerville, MA. I also sell work through my Etsy page and exhibit at Miller Street Open Studios.
