John Hartley's oil paintings honor some of the most tattered and mangled objects from our past: children's toys. Drawing from his own childhood, Hartley collects once-treasured toys that have seen better days. He then paints these childhood relics on a grand scale full of action, color and emotional weight. Racecars are prepared to zip off the surface at any moment. Toy soldiers are scattered across canvases, referencing the tense battle scenes of modern warfare. A singular light source and blurred figures and shapes create a photographic realism in Hartley's paintings. His recent paintings demonstrate a deeper exploration into composition and into the interaction between his subject matter.

null  "Toy soldiers - whether plastic or lead - symbolize to me a popular fascination with the hero and violence. Well-worn lead soldiers and mutilated plastic army men provide layers of meaning. The chips and dings are proof of some child's vigorous play, but they also symbolize the very real battle scars brought home by war veterans."
-John Hartley
