Harold Ancart: Subliminal Standard
Brooklyn-based artist Harold Ancart (b. 1980, Brussels, Belgium) has created this painted concrete sculpture as an homage to the accidental abstract compositions that appear on New York City’s ubiquitous freestanding handball walls. The artist sees the mismatched repainting and partial repairs that mask graffiti and other wear on these courts as “subliminal,” inadvertent masterpieces. He relishes their fortuitous connection to the canon of abstract art.
