Michael Hart: Sandbox

July 8, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Michael Hart has lived and worked as an artist in Albuquerque since the 1970s. Hart is a graduate of the UNM art program and has produced images of his surrealistic world that never cease to amaze. Hart was one of the first artists to make Exhibit/208 home twenty-three years ago, and this show is one of many he has produced for Exhibit/208 over the years.

In writing about his new show Sandbox he said, “Escaping into fantasy worlds is nothing new. That’s pretty much all this is. It may sound odd but I’ve come to think of the creatures in the paintings as my friends. As such I let them do whatever they want. Be whatever they want. Some of the works are self-explanatory, some less so. If you tell me what one of my paintings is about, and if I like it, I will agree with you. After all your interpretation is better than mine—for you. And for me too, since it means you are at least thinking about it.”

PS: “In all modesty, I must add that I am widely recognized as Albuquerque’s least-known living treasure.”
