Robert Hardgrave will have a solo show this coming December at the David B Smith Gallery, but he was nice enough to send over a project he has been working on that will be in this new show. As stated by Robert: “Rapture Suit” is a project where leftovers from failed paintings were used to construct an all encompassing outfit. Unable to see where we are going, we can only view upwards into the unknown.” The entire suit looks to be made from pieces of acrylic on canvas painting, that have been reconstructed. It’s an amazing idea, as it not only saves the pieces of so-called “failed paintings” from being tossed or painted over, but turns the pieces into a new 3-dimensional work of art. I can only imagine how colorful this suit will be once the show is released.
