Works on Paper


"Gregory Hardy’s paintings materialize out of a process that begins with his physical presence in the landscape, the notation of certain visual cues through drawings, and finally the painting process where memories and material construct an equivalence for the original experience. They depend, for their effectiveness, on the ability of the painted mark to access remembered experience in an intuitive manner that engages both mind and spirit. Stroke by stroke, layer upon layer, they construct their own history through a process of emergence and obscurity. The viewer’s entrance through and into the interior space of Hardy’s paintings parallels that of the artist’s journey; his desire to find, in the temporal, an entrance to the spiritual."
