Harold Ancart (b. 1980, Brussels, Belgium) lives and works in New York. He embarks on spatial exploration in his paintings, drawings, photographic work, sculptures and installations. Ancart paints and projects onto surfaces, leaving vibrant, colorful traces and shapes that create his dreamlike landscapes. Drawn to subjects that naturally invite contemplation – such as the horizon seen in the desert, through trees, and bodies of water – Ancart often works in series to explore the possibilities of painting.
In 2019 the Public Art Fund presented “Harold Ancart: Subliminal Standard” in Brooklyn, NY, a painted concrete handball court that allowed his work to extend beyond the canvas and asked visitors to become part of the composition and engage with the surroundings. Ancart has participated in solo and group exhibitions world wide and his work is included in the collections of international institutions including Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C.; Fondation Beyeler, Basel; The Menil Collection, Houston, TX; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA; and Whitney Museum of American Art, NY among others.
We are proud to be working with Harold on an upcoming project for Primary Children’s Hospital Miller Family Campus in Lehi, Utah. Harold Ancart created a limited edition print exclusively for RxART in 2015. His work is also featured in Between the Lines, Vol. 6.
