David Hare


Born in New York, New York; died in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

David Hare was active in the New York Surrealist movement as a co-founder, with André Breton, Max Ernst, and Marcel DuChamp, and editor of the surrealist magazine VVV. His primary focus was sculpture as he believed in the strength of an object, as opposed to the illusion represented by a painting. In his Tamarind lithographs, made during three different visits to Tamarind, in 1972, 1975, and 1987, Hare was interested in the play between representation and abstraction which he thought of as idea to thing and thing to idea.
