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.
