| An intriguing look at the paintings by artist Hannah van Bart.

The monograph Hannah van Bart contains over more than 100 art works (paintings and drawings) and gives an intriguing look at the work of Dutch artist Hannah van Bart (1963). The publication is published in collaboration with the Centraal Museum Utrecht on the occasion of the solo exhibition of Hannah van Bart at Oud Amelisweerd country house (April 1st - August 20th 2023). Hannah van Bart is represented by Marianne Boesky Gallery New York & Aspen, and Vielmetter Los Angeles. With a foreword by Artistic director of Centraal Museum Bart Rutten, an interview by London-based art critic Allie Biswas with Hannah van Bart, and an essay on the work of the artist by writer and art critic Hans den Hartog Jager. 

Anyone viewing Hannah van Bart's paintings for a length of time will be prompted to return to them again and again. Her works are invigorating and have enormous psychological depth. Beauty and discomfort go hand in hand. Not the pursuit of capturing a moment, like you see in photography or a studio sketch, but a long process of turning things over in one's mind, painting and erasing, adding and taking away. This process provides an interestingly hard edge to her paintings.

'What I'm making are actually imaginary figures. I build an imaginary character. (...) I sand off parts every time it becomes stuck and then bring it back to rebuild. At the end, I reach that point, where there is that feeling of freedom. (...) It makes something that is invisible, unseen, so very present. Visible for the mind's eye only, but it clearly influences how you perceive that moment: the realm of invisibility has entered the image.' - Hannah van Bart. 

Hannah van Bart (1963) lives and works in Utrecht. Van Bart studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy (1983-1988) and the Rijksacademie van beeldende kunsten (1988-1990) in Amsterdam. Throughout the years, the artist has been part of many exhibitions, and public collections, nationally and internationally, and has received multiple awards. 

Allie Biswas is an art critic based in London. In 2021, she coedited The Soul of a Nation Reader: Writings by and about Black American Artists, 1960-1980 (Gregory R. Miller). Between 2015 and 2019, Biswas published long-form interviews in the Brooklyn Rail with artists including Rashid Johnson, Julie Mehretu, Adam Pendleton, and Wolfgang Tillmans. 

Laurie Cluitmans has worked as Curator of Contemporary Art at the Centraal Museum in Utrecht since 2018 and curated the solo exhibition of Hannah van Bart at Oud Amelisweerd country house. In 2016 she was awarded the Prize for Young Art Critics 2016. Cluitmans is a regular contributor to magazines such as Metropolis M, and De Witte Raaf.

Hans den Hartog Jager is a writer and art critic, based in Amsterdam. He writes reviews, has his own monthly column in the newspaper NRC Handelsblad. He has curated shows in different Dutch museums, and wrote numerous books on art.

Bart Rutten has been artistic director of Centraal Museum since May 2017. Since taking office, the museum has manifested itself more emphatically as a place for contemporary art, programming many exhibitions in which art from different disciplines and time periods enter into dialogue with each other.
