Injections and Impressions
New York-based artist Bradley Hart injects bubbles in bubble wrap with paint to craft reinterpretations of classic paintings
Bradley Hart has a unique, tedious method in which he recreates iconic paintings. Using a syringe filled with acrylic paint, Hart carefully injects each bubble in a bubble wrap in order to create a cohesive image. Each painting takes an average of 150 painstaking hours to complete. One-third of that time goes to filling thousands of syringes with paint.
The New York-based artist has to be acutely aware of the exchange between paint and the air inside as one of those two elements displaces the other. After meticulously crafting the image, Hart peels the dripping away to reveal an imprint of the work. He says, “Viewed together, the pieces each seem to engage the other and the viewer becomes an observer of a relationship created between the two.”
Hart’s pixelated paintings are currently being exhibited at Cavalier Galleries Inc. in New York City.
