ARTIST BIO

Originally from Hong Kong, Irene Hardy has lived in California since 1979.  Upon moving to Brentwood in 2016, Irene became immersed in the lively local art community.  Her artistic inspirations originate from her love of abstract art and contemporary designs.

In the past two years, Irene has been able to redirect her artistic talents towards the creation of fluid acrylic motion-based abstract paintings.  Her artwork has been showcased at the Delta Art Gallery in seven consecutive shows and continuously exhibited at the Studio Seven Gallery in Pleasanton since 2018.

 

Her artwork became available at the Studio One Gallery in Petaluma, CA in 2019.  The ArtWorks Downtown in San Rafael recently displayed her work at the Coastal Exhibition and The Expressions Gallery in Berkeley, exhibited her paintings at their Across the Universe show.

 

Also, Irene’s work was accepted at the Alchemy Exhibit, a juried show hosted by the Art Guild of Sonoma.  In November and December of 2019, Irene showcased her art at the US Show at Blue Line Arts in Roseville.  Most recently, from October to December of 2019, Irene hosted a solo exhibition at the Delta Gallery in Brentwood and received raved reviews from colleagues and customers alike.

ARTIST STATEMENT

​My interest in contemporary art inspired me to engage in fluid art paintings.  This is a painting technique where multiple colored acrylic paints are mixed with a pouring medium, poured onto a surface, and manipulated in a variety of ways to create a unique art form.  My paintings incorporate vibrant colors, graceful movements, layers, and cell-like structures that express depth, sophistication and abstraction.  Each unique piece originates from thoughtful color combinations, adept paint flow techniques, and natural unrestrained randomness.  My completed pieces have high gloss resin or varnish coatings applied to enhance color clarity and brightness.  In addition to paintings, I also developed a unique line of one-of-a kind jewelry pieces that feature miniature fluid art designs.
