About Harold Ancart

Harold Ancart combines paintings, drawings, and mixed media sculptures into large installations that draw attention to the social and architectural condition of the space in which the work is exhibited. “I like to envision exhibits not so much as a succession of objects to be looked at, but as tensions created between the various zones of emptiness.” The subtlety of Ancart’s interventions into space mirror his use of evanescent materials for mark-making; he incorporates ink, charcoal powder, soot, and dark traces left behind by flames into his works. Presenting concrete, epoxy resin, and steel sculptures alongside burnt found photographs and abstract paintings, Ancart displays an interest in biomorphic forms and landscapes.
