If you want to know who the next big thing is in the art world, let me introduce you to Harriet Hoult.
Her pieces are beautiful and intriguing and would be a stylish addition to an empty space on your wall. If you don’t have any space, you may want to think about replacing it with one of Harriet’s. She has a growing fan base and they are fast becoming collectors items – once someone has bought one, they often buy from her again. They would also make a wonderful present.
Harriet is an abstract painter who has an instinctive approach to her work. Each painting is a unique journey where she is continually challenged to trust in the process. She is inspired by the everyday and her work is an interpretation of these experiences onto paper. She is fascinated by aesthetics and the visual interplay between form, space and colour which she is continually exploring. Harriet paint’s in acrylic, building layers, combining different shapes, marks and colours, to create abstract images. For her there is a “certain mystery in abstract form; a communication without direct suggestion that can be interpreted by the viewer, based on their own perceptions and can sometimes speak to a deeper part of us”.
Her studio is in Petersham, near Richmond. It is approx 3m x 5m and it has a clear plastic roof which makes it fantastic in terms of light. “I am a very messy painter so it is absolutely covered in a multitude of splashes and drips of different coloured paint”. At either end of the space, are shelves where she keep’s all of her paints and brushes. In an ideal world she would love a really big studio with lots of space as she love’s working on multiple paintings at the same time. From the reaction Harriet’s pieces are getting, I imagine it won’t be long before she has her much desired larger studio!
