Biography

Brian Harte (b. 1978) lives and works in County Tipperary, Ireland. He graduated with first class honours BFA degree at the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork. Harte works mainly with large-scale canvases and is concerned with the investigation of composition and the relationship between abstractionism and figurative painting, relating to the tradition of British painting. One of the main characteristics of Harte’s paintings is his bold use of color and the indeterminate condition of the canvases’ figures, which remain in a state between the sketch-like and the finished. Though this process is already perceptible in his earlier paintings, it notably became a grander concern for Harte in his latest works. As Ffrench/Harte he has also worked collaboratively on large sculptural projects with fellow Irish artist Anne Ffrench. Harte has been the recipient of awards and residencies including the Arts Council of Ireland’s Project Award on two occasions.
