Like diary entries, Eric Haacht creates paintings on a daily basis. The energy and essence of which synchronise with his circadian rhythms, as well as the ocean that ebbs and flows outside of his studio window. Initially entertaining grand notions of this collection existing as a separate entity that transcends his everyday practice, the paintings emerge instead as a continuation of the quotidian – a humble snapshot of the temporary moments and transient states of Haacht’s day-to-day existence.

“My paintings are like diary entries in the sense that it is a daily practice of trying to trap my subconscious, or trying to lure it out through paint.”

— Eric Haacht


Framed works are presented in a wooden tray frame. We use an Obeche wood which is stained by hand and made to order.

This is available in White, Lime Wash, Black or Brown, as shown in the below images.

Please specify your frame colour preference in the notes when placing your order. We are happy to hold up samples against your purchased painting and discuss which finish works best.

Framing is 2 - 4 weeks as standard but please let us know if this is needed for a particular date and we will do our best to accommodate a faster turnaround for you. Alternative mouldings, frame style or size are available upon request, do not hesitate to contact us to discuss further.
