Der schwarze Hund trägt bunt
Distanz Verlag Gmbh Llc
Eckart Hahn (b. 1971 in Freiburg; lives and works in Stuttgart) creates paintings that combine technical perfection worthy of the Old Masters with a Surrealist flair. For depression, sometimes the phrase “the black dog” is used. So Eckart Hahn’s dog in colorful attire is in a sense wearing camouflage, but in the artist’s selfconception, the animal also figures as an emblem of variety, complexity, and subtle ambiguity.
