Hallie Hart is an American born artist from New York City. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with an M.A. in English Literature. Beyond her passion for creative writing, Hart is deeply engaged in the canon of abstract expressionism. Hart interned for painter Annaleis van Dommelen in Holland, sparking a dedication to abstraction that led her to build a name for herself as a prominent abstract painter today.
Aligning with first-generation New York School abstract expressionists such as Jackson Pollock, Hart continues the tradition of gestural expressionism as a tool to channel perceptual experiences into moments; paintings. She suspends from a catwalk to approach the painting from above the canvas, using only her hands to manipulate, flick, splatter or throw paint.
In 2016, Hart dove into filmmaking, producing a documentary titled “Fragments, Michael Gitlin”, a provocative expose into the life and work of Mr. Gitlin, along with several other films. Hart has received numerous awards, notably the prestigious GemLucArt Award. Hart’s paintings have been exhibited widely and her work can be found in numerous corporate and private collections across Europe, Asia, and the United States. Hart is represented by global giant Opera Gallery and is currently in thirteen countries. Hart lives between and maintains studios in New York, Miami, London, and Monaco.
Hart is currently working towards her solo sculpture and painting exhibition at the Museo del Parco Portofino in the Spring of 2020 and has been officially inducted into the museum as the first American woman. In addition, Hart will be presented by The Rubell Family Collection and Contemporary Arts Foundation, the foundation is now one of the world’s largest, privately owned, publicly accessible contemporary art collections; which will include her at Art Basel Miami 2019 in the USA. Hart also will be exhibiting at Florence Biennale 2020. Lastly, Hart will be presenting her much anticipated Documentary film following the lives of four emerging artists titled “Turn Your Insides Out”.
