In Beyond the Veil, artist Caleb Hahne, inspired by John Baldessari, Clyfford Still and Henri Matisse, builds upon his previous work to analyze the current state of contemporary figurative painting and his place within it. Continuing with his practice of remixing, providing a fresh contemporary approach to established methods and forms, he begins by re-rendering images appropriated from the Internet using a combination of wet and dry mediums applied to panels and book covers. Allowing his imagination free play, he expands his technique by adding blobs of primarily pastel colored house paints like silhouettes in the foreground. Similar to Baldessari’s use of color, the blobs tend to break down or reduce the information but also serve as new sources that are key to understanding the content. Hahne’s images hint at shadows or phantoms that allow the viewer to peer beyond the veil and into a new array of meaning. Through his new work, Hahne explores the tension between representational figurative drawing and abstract mark making.
