Painting Art by Eckart Hahn transfers the fluid and vivid imagery of the subconscious mind onto a canvas. He is a German artist bringing color to the world.
The result is both life-like and unlikely, or as the artist himself describes it, a kind of ‘‘broken realism’’ that, through humour and cheerful colours, touches upon the darker parts of our psyche. We could therefore say that the greatest virtue of these works is their immediacy: the execution is so impeccable and the aesthetic so compelling that their impact is felt directly, making us forget that they were actually made with great pain and skill by the hand of another person.
In recent years, layering, masking and concealing have been recurring elements in Hahn’s work. This is related to the artist’s belief that his work is more like ‘‘a web of invisible strands that become visible through each painting,’’ like networks of fungi that grow hidden in the ground.
