Moxon writes: "Harding is one of Britain's most interesting painters working in abstraction today. Underlying even the most structured of appearances, randomness and chance are at the helm, and it is these concepts that prevail in the workings of [this] London-based artist. Throughout Harding's work, structures are shown to fail, grids collapse, and hard-edged systems give way to entropy. Jumping off from Abstract Expressionism and the works remind me of Clyfford Still and Gerhard Richter."
Matt Jones interviews painter Kadar Brock about his work and practice.
Brock comments: "I don't think about the body in a direct or traditional sense, but... they are very physical paintings. I make them laying on top of them, pushing into them, scraping away at them, sanding them and so on. And I touch them, a lot. I think a lot about paintings as hugs, as points of empathy. This probably sounds very sappy, but it ties into... a sense of reassurance almost, that I hope to give a viewer with the work. And that's a very physical sensation."
