'Interview: Andrew Pierre Hart Discovers the Rhythms of Painting' – Something Curated

Andrew Pierre Hart’s practice explores the symbiotic relationship between sound and painting, incorporating aspects of sculpture, language, performance and film.

I am asking questions as well as creating the environments to understand these phenomena.
