The Art Office

Primrose Hill’s newest gallery The Art Office present their first solo exhibition with local emerging artist Rebecca Hardaker: ‘It’s not what you see, it’s what you see in it’, 30 May – 30 June 2024.

Rebecca Hardaker (b.1988, Yorkshire) is a contemporary artist based in north London. Her vibrant and engaging artworks explore the intersection of painting and drawing. Painting directly with her hands, her abstract expressionist works have great depth and complexity, often exploring memory and emotion.
She creates shapes and forms to present the audience with a narrative which flows around the canvas, continually drawing the eye to the next part of the story.
Some pieces in the show are inspired by nature, while others incorporate excerpts from inspiring texts taken from poetry and literature. The words ‘trust me’ and ‘find me’ can be found in two of the paintings, a subtle reminder that day to day we are constantly trusting and finding ourselves.
The title for the show, ‘It’s not what you see, it’s what you see in it’, comes from a quote from the landscape designer Piet Oudolf. Resonating with Rebecca’s work, she encourages viewers find within each painting something that uniquely speaks to them.

The Art Office, which opened in December 2023, is an art consultancy and gallery working with clients in the workplace, residential, hospitality and public realm sectors, using curated art collections, installations and experiences to bring their stories to life.
Trusted by both new and experienced collectors to help build, manage and curate their collections: from acquiring specific works direct from artists or via private sales and auctions; to facilitating the framing, hanging and conservation process; or providing market context for valuations of individual works.
The 2024 gallery schedule will see a selection of solo and group exhibitions of emerging and established artists.
