Works by Amber Hart


I grew up in a small Louisiana neighborhood where neighbors became close friends, and the social events were frequent with an open invitation. In 2012, my perspective on the suburbia lifestyle shifted dramatically. Dallas’s suburbs sit at a constant building stage and was an introduction into the reality of “cookie cutter” homes. My neighborhood acted as a subway station and me and my neighbors were just passengers waiting for the right platform to get off at. I began to realize that the homes were built as temporary holding spaces. Social events are few and far in between. Just a passive aggressive strong odor of barbeque from a few houses down would let you know that one was close by. These two drastically different environments led me to the principal theme in my work - exploring the suburbia lifestyles of past and present Americans through narrative surrealism. Details found in my paintings are gathered by research in Mid-Century to present day architecture, lifestyle, and art history. Although the work is very concrete in imaginary, I allow room for viewers to create their own narratives.

Amber Hart is a first-generation American born citizen from a Belizean family that immigrated to America in 1976. She grew up in the small town of Covington, Louisiana where the community was tightly knit. In 2012, Hart moved to North Texas where she first came face to face with the concept of “cookie cutter” communities. Her work reflects the need for human connection within communities that are built as temporary holding spaces.

Located at 1300 Gendy Street, Arts Fort Worth is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. Now known as Arts Fort Worth, the building continues to exhibit world class art and support the performing arts for more than half a century.
