  • Catalogue Essay

    Working from photographic sources – shots from TV and video, images culled from magazines and catalogues and his own photographs – he selects prosaic subjects ranging from anonymous buildings, trains and trailers, and modifies them to make inkjet prints as the departure point for his paintings. His paintings elude straightforward classification: mundane images that are abstracted into a kind of mannerism of the everyday. Havekost's paintings are executed in colour on top of a six underlying and alternating coats of grey and white. This slow, careful process creates a luminous atmosphere that makes the paintings glow with a strange, otherworldly richness of light. Havekost describes this as a 'democratic light' that reveals the immanent brilliance of everything.Taken from www.whitecube.com
