Further Biographical Context for Dwayne Harty
Dwayne Harty was born in 1957 and was primarily inspired by the 1970s. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and progress in the arts, most often defined as a response to the dominant stresses of the previous decade. Conceptual art developed as a influential movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the expansive outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and engaging with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal reflections, creating cryptic and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years before, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly renowned figures worldwide. A number of the artists who gained fame and successful in the 1960s remained dominant figures. For example, Andy Warhol branched out into film and magazine publishing, the first kind of pan cultural activity for a visual artist. This secured his reputation as a major international celebrity in his own right. n Japan and Korea, artists associated with the Mono-Ha movement focused on encounters between natural and industrial materials such as stone, glass, cotton, sponge, wood, oil and water, arranging them in mostly unchanged, ephemeral conditions. The works focused on the interdependency of these various elements and the surrounding space, and had a strong focus upon the European ideas of phenomenology.
