PETRA HART

Petra Hart is represented by Rademakers Gallery Amsterdam. She works in clearly defined concepts. The common denominator is nature in the broadest sense of the word as a source of inspiration. Petra is extremely fascinated by physics and conducted research between 2016 - 2019 on topics as the electromagnetic spectrum, space, light and time. In her new series of work she has programmed RGB LED. The light slowly changes color in 24 hours.

 

Time goes very slowly. What exactly happens between sunset and sunrise? Does the sun rise exactly at the same place every day and does it set in the same place? Or does it save a yoctosecond? A fraction of a second that we cannot comprehend? Are there different time paths? Are there multiple dimensions? Is time flowing? Does time have a direction? What is real or imaginary? Is reality the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent, as opposed to that which is only imaginary? Is reality the totality of the universe, known and unknown? This questions fascinate her immensely.

 

In another series of work she lets her public experience a process of deconstruction and shows the aesthetic qualities and wondrous mathematically of nature and removes all boundaries of size, scale and materiality from her subject by transferring it to the digital realm. With a great eye for detail she creates a vector-based drawing of the chosen subject. This digital grid then forms the base for a visual play of lines representing a digital re-interpretation of a natural phenomenon set in a specific material in combination with a sampling of colors that make up the appearance of the original. Petra works from a vector-based computer program. Vectors are hundred percent sharp, any size. In fact, these lines are infinite, just like the universe.

 

Her art is included in private collections in Europe and the United States of America.
