The detail in Kimberley Hart’s coloured pencil on paper pieces is simply amazing, with softly precise lines and shading. Hart’s new series is called Scout and follows the narrative of the artist’s alter ego (a young girl who remains behind the scenes) who is installed at an austere outpost, focused on survival. The landscape is barren, devoid of the sticks and stones that have been used in building. Elsewhere, other strange things are taking place. Yet the viewer senses that elsewhere there are healthy green trees with deep roots.
Artist: Kimberley Hart
Scout opens November 12 at Mixed Greens in New York and runs through December 23, 2009.
