Derek Hart Fine Art & Illustration
It is important to say first that the foundations of all of my works are built almost entirely from observing the world around me. Whether it be from direct observation, photographs, or a combination of the two.

The attempt to capture this world comes to fruition through a rigorous and constant push and pull of material on a two dimensional plain. The act of my creations is not a science and there are no number of steps involved.

As an artist, it is this process that excites me, as well as observing how the materials I use react along the way. The undercurrent of it all is the need to give my own intuitions and psychological perspectives of the world and people around me a physical existence.
