About

Ground Floor Gallery is thrilled to launch artist Rhia Hurt’s “Balancing Acts”! A new collection of luminous paintings employing the balance between control and chance; deep reflection and play, these are the first artworks to come out of Hurt’s California studio. As described by the artist, Rhia Hurt’s artwork “involves intuition and improvisation—a play between control and chance.” In this new grouping in series called “Balancing Acts,” Hurt employs the process of artmaking to navigate current climate shifts between living in NYC and Northern California. Not only having experienced the change of settings between coasts, but literally the effects of climate change as witnessed during this summer’s wildfires in Hurt’s native California. Culling imagery, and making decisions and color choices based on photographs in the media documenting the fires, Hurt created paintings of rich golds, electric reds, oranges and complimentary cool blues and ashy gray-blacks. “As a painter, there came a point when I wanted to break out of the rectangular picture plane. This shift in perspective allowed pure color, value and form to drive the work. Composed with ovoid forms, I consider how the negative space flows around the forms that anchor my compositions. Some shapes appear to contain the force of gravity while others appear to float upward. There is a simultaneous feeling of tension and balance created by their placement. Each form is a meditation on color. The properties of each pigment differ. Some pigments are physically lighter and float to the top, while others sink. As the paint dries, the pigments blend and settle creating organic marks that appear to map unearthed color relationships.”
