David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles Acquired from the above by the present owner
"This is the planet of painting, after all, and Ancart’s space exploration is the exploration of painted space: More than depicting petals and flames, how might a painting itself grow like a flower, ignite like fire, and bring about forms that thrive as life-forms in the otherworld?"
Chinnie Ding, "Harold Ancart," Artforum, 19 June 2015, online
