Realistically Unreal: Eckart Hahn

Illustration // Friday, June 14, 2013
Eckart Hahn has realistically unreal down to a tee. His ability to paint hyper-realistically is stunning, but we appreciate even more his choice to represent surreal pairings of animals and objects, using subject matter that pushes against the realism. He delivers deliberate hints at familiar old-master motifs and symbolic compositions such as duvets, white ponies, birds and monkeys. Hahn's paintings are strange and titillating, a great combination of style and subject in communication.

Paul White's Wasteland Wanderlust

Illustration // Thursday, June 13, 2013
Hollow shells of human transportation take center stage in Paul White's beautiful color pencil drawings. Machines that used to do nothing but move now know only stasis in these portraits of airplanes, trains, and automobiles that have been gutted, defaced and left to decay, never to fly, ride or drive again. A lovely quiet melancholy pervades these works, tragic everyday monuments commemorating a world of human possibility in indefinite inertia. White was born in Sydney, Australia and received his MFA from CalArts Los Angeles.

Bruce Mackay's 'The Love Between You and I'

Illustration // Thursday, June 13, 2013
South African artist Bruce Mackay created this beautiful melancholic series in dark monochrome for a visual article about music the artist loves. Based on the Attack in Black's 'The Love Between You and I,' Mackay explains-- 'I have always felt a sense of longing in Attack In Black's music. A mix of sadness and anger over loss and a subtle feeling of hope that comes out of it. I've interpreted it with a series of drawings that narrate the emotions I get from their music. Lost youth and missing friends and the hope that you might get those things back one day, that things are not lost, that decay can be reversed.'
