Selected Art by Asher Hardt | The Hardt
Driven by a philosophy of constant passion, this LA native has melded his love of architecture and art into a single craft. A passion encouraged by his grandmother, Asher’s fondest memories are found driving about Los Angles and looking at homes with her. Plagued by an uncertain and unconventional upbringing, his life and art, have grown out of the motto “I never lose… I just tend to learn the hard way.” Giving his art endless sources of inspiration to draw upon. It was within this chaos that he found his niche, as Mie van der Rohe puts it “Less is More.” Which has become the cornerstone of his work. The understated elegance that Brunello Cucinelli and Lucio Fontana brought into their repertoires would harmonize with the timeless aesthetic Asher brings to his canvases. Using a variety of scrap wood as the canvas in his art, Asher uses these reclaimed, sometimes abandoned pieces to mimic breathtaking architecture. “It’s therapeutic,” says Hardt, “allowing my experiences to speak through the wood and allowing it to reach its own unthought of potential.”
Discovering the outlet, he’s searched for, for thirty years, this is a unique opportunity to watch him develop as an artist. In the future, he plans to continue expanding the mediums in which to express himself and continue to learn and grow.
