Eric Haacht | Artist Profile
___

Eric Haacht's expressive paintings fall into the realm of portraiture yet remain ambiguous, features only emerging unintentionally through his swirling brush strokes and enfolding vivid colours. The figures are not literal self-portraits, but for Eric, something of the self emanates through them as he paints quickly and subconsciously. He describes his works as like diary entries, a repetitive daily process through which he captures certain moods or emotions. 

“My paintings are essentially about life and death, I think all forms of portraiture are really a way of confronting our own mortality, and leaving something of ourselves behind.”
