New Blood Art Statement

Hardwick demonstrates a naturalistic technique that exhibits her female subjects in their rawest - imperfectly perfect state.

Drawing inspiration from "Dutch and Flemish painters", it is conceivable that Hardwick found creative resonance and inspiration in the work of Flemish contemporary artist, Michaël Borremans. Of Belgian origin, Borremans gained notoriety for his lifelike depictions of somewhat unnerving portraits. Both artists can be seen using fluid brush-strokes which create a textural softness – adding an ingenious layer to an uncanny narrative. Also comparable, are the artists’ use of hyper-realistic colour creating a sense that they are not quite photographs, yet are more real somehow than a painting… Hardwick is a fine emerging artist indeed.

Artist Statement

My paintings manipulate and play on the themes surrounding women in art, both currently and historically. Drawing inspiration from past painters, especially those of Dutch and Flemish origins, the paintings are rendered in a naturalistic style so as to demonstrate their connection to reality and to art history. This is contrasted with bizarre or peculiar compositions so as to heighten the women’s ambiguous settings and thus create a space for audience contemplation.
