Amze Emmon’s, the article’s author, puts into perspective what made this show a tour de force for Chris:

We have written about Hartshore’s work on this blog before, and all of those observations still hold true, but this exhibition provided something missing and vital to his work, space. In this setting, his large scale prints seems to unfold to fill the space in a shock wave. The monochromatic woodcut prints are monumental. While the work is solidly abstract it’s swirling shapes, when seen from across the room form a kind of frenetic animation. The distance allows the work to envelop the viewer in a complete environment made-up of delicate carved marks that read alternately as smoke, explosions, flying detritus, crashing waves, or maybe a micro-cosmic view of life inside a super collider.

Bravo, Chris, and Brava, Nora and Astrid.  The show was spectacular.
