Luke Hart completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (hons) in sculpture, at the Pratt Institute in New York City, in the spring of 2007. He moved to London towards the end of that year. In 2013 he completed a Master of Arts degree in sculpture at the Royal College of Art. He is interested in how things are put together, and in suggesting possible new applications for materials. His work focuses on the relationships between the organic and the synthetic, the objects that people interact with, and the materials, and potential materials, of which those objects are made. He believes that Sculpture can be a form of material research and development, for the functional objects of the built world. Upon viewing things, people often ask the question: What is it? Hart doesn’t believe this to be a productive question to ask. He says rather, that one should ask: What does it do? What could it do? For Hart, sculpture is a method of thinking about what we as humans build, and what we could be capable of building.
Hart won a Royal British Society of Sculptors Bursary in 2009, receiving the Bursary+ award the following year.
His first solo Exhibition was held at Tim Sheward Projects in November 2013
Work is currently on view at the Garden Gallery at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, as part of The London Project Goes North, presented by Gerson Zevi. Read Less
