  • Catalogue Essay

    Painter Eberhard Havekost utilizes media imagery and his own photography as the starting point for his object-based paintings. His banal subjects, such as dilapidated structures, vehicles, or interior scenes with figures, are processed through a number of filters before the final image is achieved. The compositions tend to be photographic - cropped, close-up, or with an exaggerated perspective - and are distorted with computer effects that may flatten or distort space, or alter contrast. This imagery in turn becomes abstracted during the painting process through the reduction of form, emphasis on schematic design, and flat planes of color executed with spare and deliberate brushstrokes.
