Viewing Room – Fergus Hare
For his third major project for the gallery 14th March – 27th April 2019, Fergus Hare made a major departure. Working for the first time in pastel, he expanded his language and working practice to create an astonishing new body of work. Living and working in Sussex his focus remains the landscape at twilight, however in the new pieces, the evocation of light, atmosphere and haze across the horizon was extended and he created a series of pastels. A selection of which you can see here. They are impressive pastels on paper and the delicacy of their surface and powdery quality represents the dying light. Catching the exact moment of the end of day this group of works speaks of the romance of the English countryside.
The exhibition also launched a new print edition of the planet Uranus.
The exhibition followed on from recent projects with New Art Projects including ‘Art For Living’ at Colefax and Fowler, a solo presentation entitled ‘Moon’ at Paper Positions Munich, his 2017 solo show ‘Cosmic Matters’ and his major installation for ‘English Magic’. New oil paintings will be presented at Spring Break Art Fair New York as part of a major curated exhibition.
This Room has been put together to make a selection of his current work.
