Joseph Hart (b. 1976, New Hampshire) is a New York City based visual artist known for tactile, abstract drawings, paintings, and prints. Hart received a B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design and has work in the public collections of San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the RISD Museum, Davis Museum at Wellesley College and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Hart has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design and The City College of New York.
Hart approaches printmaking with the same curiosity and playfulness applied to his large format works on canvas and paper. His nontraditional approach to drawing with handmade tools and collage influences his approach to printmaking where images evolve through a call and response process through proofing and color relationships.
Concurrent with his studio practice, Hart is the founder and producer of Deep Color™–an oral history project and podcast that features artists and arts professionals discussing their work, ideas and lives. Deep Color™ has participated in public programming at On Air Fest, The Armory Show and New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA). Deep Color™ is independently produced and a free resource for listeners.
