ABOUT CALEB HAHNE
Exploring the conversation between perceiver and perceived, Caleb Hahne's latest work reflects on the fleeting moments of intimacy with oneself and others. Hahne remixes convention by first appropriating images found on the internet. He then expands his technique by reducing information and creating a surrogate figure for the viewer to interact with. These ambiguous silhouettes function as empty vessels in which one can place himself or herself within to experience moments of intimacy or lack thereof. The absence of identity portrays an unfinished picture or blurred memory for the viewer to complete for themselves.
Caleb Hahne (b. 1993) graduated from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in 2014 and currently lives and works in Denver, Colorado.
