CATALOGUE NOTE
"The history of painting that lives in these works like chromosomal traces enriches such dimensional unknowns. Fauvist and Symbolist flavors are joined by AbEx and Minimalist devices...Discrete veins of color and encroaching edges recall Clyfford Still’s seismic fissures...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 it always is?" - Chinnie Ding, "Critics' Picks: Harold Ancart," Artforum, 18 June 2015
