Hilary Harkness: Everything For You is the first comprehensive monograph on the artist's work. Known for her irreverent, provocative and meticulously crafted paintings, Harkness employs historic world events and art history as jumping off points from which to explore power dynamics and struggles through an intersectional lens. A queer Midwesterner from a family with working class origins, Harkness has lived in coastal cities (San Francisco, New York) for the majority of her life. She is married to an African American woman who shares her interest in art and literature. These life experiences are infused throughout her works, even as they defy pure autobiographical interpretation. The worlds that unfold on Harkness's canvases teem with the inescapable human foibles that plague each of us, making it relatable and resonant with viewers across a broad and global spectrum. This heavily illustrated publication provides an opportunity for further exploration of Harkness's practice alongside essays by Lynne Tillman and Dr Ashley Jackson, as well as insights from the artist herself.
