Contradictions Series:
Hahn explores the dichotomy between what we express externally versus what we hold internally. He manifests this mainly through words that are obvious and visible combined with partially obscured words in the textured surface. It’s a study on human nature and our need for validation and the perceived perfection in our lives, in conflict with our innate inability to be vulnerable and transparent, resulting in a clear contradiction between the two.

Pixel Series:
Hahn’s art has always had a focus on texture and that has played a key part in his artistic process. With his Pixel Series, the surface becomes the texture in a dynamic and contemporary way. He constructs, deconstructs and then reconstructs each pixel in an intense process to achieve the finished product. Reminiscent of modern day digital pixels, these paintings are both a metaphor for the focus on the individual and microscopic pieces that make up ones whole self and the obscurity of our memories of past events, either through time or repression. A sight truly worthy of beholding in person!

Section of article:

Hahn’s newest work has both a funny and somewhat uncomfortable edge. As he explains, “It explores the dichotomy between what we express externally versus what we hold internally.” He continues, “I’m manifesting this mainly through words that are obvious and visible combined with partially obscured words in the textured surface. It’s a study on human nature and our need for validation and the perceived perfection in our lives, in conflict with our innate inability to be vulnerable and transparent, resulting in a clear contradiction between the two.”

Hahn uses texture and color to explore emotion while maintaining an aesthetic integrity. Hahn usually begins with thin layers of acrylic paint, laying darker pigment over lighter pigment. He then begins his process of manipulating and often removing paint to expose the light hidden within. To do this, Hahn uses his own hands, rags, or non-traditional materials.

Behind the scenes: Interview and photoshoot about me and my art – publishing soon!

So I should probably focus more on promoting myself, but sometimes great things come your way regardless. I’m a pretty humble person, but I am learning to celebrate me more and this is something I am extremely excited about and want to shout from the roof tops!

I was approached about a full spread featured artisan article, interview and photoshoot about me and my art for the upcoming March 2018 issue of St. Louis Homes + Lifestyles magazine. They interviewed me and came to my studio for a photoshoot late in 2017. The magazine will be published near the end of February. I am so excited to see how it all comes together!

Here is a sneak peak, I was able to capture a photo of the photoshoot, so you get a little behind the scenes preview of what the article will be about.
