Background Information about Niki Hare

Introduction

Niki Hare manages to transform the unspoken into an everlasting artistic experience. To achieve this, she blends language and color to create an innovative form of expression – one that translates emotions into spectacular typography.
In Wordpaintings, thoughts and feelings are transformed into an interactive exhibit – intimate on a personal level, yet far-reaching and accessible worldwide. Niki Hare has developed a distinct visual language that is timeless, full of life, and philosophically profound. She uses language and text to colorfully express all that goes unsaid. Hare attaches great importance to the names of her works, many of which are inspired by well-known philosophers. For example, a title that refers to Jean-Paul Sartre’s writings may serve as a starting point from which Hare develops a new creation.
Honesty and directness are at the forefront of Hare’s Wordpaintings series. She extracts thoughts and words from within – without filter or alteration. Every brush stroke is a piece of her, each creation provides a glimpse into her soul, and the entirety of her works is an expression of continuous self-examination..
„Maybe I am a poet with no language except that of paint”
 Although Hare’s works come about spontaneously, they manage to follow a certain sequence. The artist blends opposing color gradients with overlays, opacity, and glazed color application to create a floating effect. Using a unique style of expression, she creates tension between the various layers; The background transitions from light to dark while the overlapping text follows an inverted color gradient, a method that provides visibility and contrast.
This technique of superimposition results in a complex composition – one that is more than the sum of its parts. In Hare’s work, she is always reinterpreting the familiar to create new points of view and encourage reflection.
Niki Hare is a visual artist based out of Tewkesbury in the United Kingdom. She works with a variety of materials and mediums. She prefers, however, working directly with a paintbrush. This method allows her to use the untamed power of color to realize her ideas as they come to mind. Her work is internationally sought after and has been on exhibition in the UK, Germany, and the USA.
