K. Imperial Fine Art is pleased to present its first solo show of the work of Hadley Radt.

Radt’s work centers around patterns and systems found in the natural and built world. She creates her own network of connections based on her impulse to construct order from these environments, oftentimes, instead, enhancing the chaos and culminating into a hypnotic labyrinth.

Even as I attempt to formulate routines of order in my pieces, the patterns start to become tangled, creating environments of organized chaos. Mistakes occur within my mark making, and my hand can be seen. I intentionally and unintentionally interrupt the systems I build, causing unexpected glitches that break the pattern. The errors make the work less mechanical and, instead, add a human quality.

I am exploring terrains of connections; physical, psychological, emotional, neurological. I am interested in the depiction of these connections and tracking layers of information. I am curious how the viewer is able to move through the accumulation of marks, finding their own pathways to navigate. – Hadley Radt
