Tim Hahn

Artist Statement:

In this time where you can’t tell the difference between much of the art produced and media advertising, or comic book illustrations or work that is computer generated, Tim Hahn is trying to produce work that is successful on a basic level. He is trying to make pieces function as more than a painting but as an “object” through the use of the chosen materials and processes. The work is about the physicality of the object and the relationships of colors, forms, and materials.


The individual pieces are a summary of an esthetic process and physical activity up to that point. If this can evoke an emotion in Tim Hahn or the viewer, fine. In the end it is a purely visual experience. The work could be about everything or it could be about nothing.
