“This is all a rather discursive way of saying two things about Harkness.  First, that there is a narrative logic in her work that compares to literature or movies more than to the static medium of easel painting, at least at the pace that form has demanded of viewers for the last few centuries.  In Harkness, local incident unfolds over time as the eye is obliged to read accumulative detail.  And secondly, “bad girl” transgressive as they remain, these sado-masochistic scenarios warrant big audience attention rather than art world connoisseurship. The ingenuity of Hilary Harkness has (or ought to have) blockbuster appeal.”David Cohen of Artcritical.com offers his insightful thoughts through a nine year review on Hilary Harkness.  First seeing her work in 2004 at Mary Boone Gallery, Cohen returns in 2005, 2008 and finally in 2013 at FLAG.  In his most recent review, Cohen contemplates how a Hollywood blockbuster version of Hilary’s painting would span out, including Angeline Jolie as a possible casting decision.  Read the complete article here.This retrospective is a rare opportunity to see this entire body of work together.  Hilary Harkness’ exhibition closes this Saturday, May 18th. Photography by Genevieve Hanson.  Excerpt from “Relentless Yet Dispassionate: Hilary Harkness at the Flag Art Foundation” by David Cohen, artcritical.com
