Gagosian Announces Representation of Harold Ancart

In anticipation of his solo exhibition with the gallery next year.

Gagosian has announced the representation of Belgian artist, Harold Ancart. Born in Brussels and based in New York, Ancart experiments with movement, light and abstraction to comment on humans relationship with natural and built environments.

Inspired by American artists such as Richard Diebenkorn, Helen Frankenthaler and Brice Marden, Ancart’s multimedia practice seeks to dismantle the boundaries between figuration and abstraction. “Once you free your mind from painting having to be a certain way, you can do anything you want,” he told The New York Times in a past interview. “That’s called freedom. That’s what they can’t teach you at school. You have to find it for yourself.”

In this way, the artist merely uses pictorial references as an “alibi” (as he reiterated) to use paint and engage in the process of creation. Ancart’s representation by the gallery comes in anticipation of his upcoming solo exhibition at Gagosian New York in 2023.

Elsewhere, Glenn Lutz released a book examining Black masculinity, identity and mental well-being.
