Niki Hare

Niki Hare is a self-taught visual artist based in Gloucestershire. Known for her eclectic style, Niki dissects and digests concepts of vision and existence through painting, collage, print and video. Working in a wide range of media, Niki deconstructs the world around us, presenting it from multiple angles, instilling the ordinary with a thought-provoking sense of impermanence, imbalance and discomfort.

After a brief period at art college, Niki took 20-years away from art to pursue a career in equestrianism. Now back on the art scene, her presence is unignorable. Street Art and Abstract Expressionism influences come through Niki Hare's work. Through a process of intricate layering and complex compositions, many of her canvases begin as typographical explorations and evolve into new visual languages.

In her abstract collages, the artist combines elements of detailing and observation. Niki layers paint, scrapes it back, forms new textures and animates surfaces with images and, her signature addition, graffiti-esque words. Curiously, Niki not only manages to explore what is there but also what is not; she sees the unseen, the spaces between and what could be there. Her alternative portraits investigate the self, coupling dusky details with a sense of exposing our most vulnerable, hidden traits - painting from the inside out.
