Sascha Hahn creates a very personal visual quality and spatial dimension with his images. The production process itself, visible in the particular textures of the image surfaces, becomes an actual component in the formation of his images. They emerge in a kind of experimental set-up, which does not define the finished image, but rather, Hahn develops “automatons” – stencils, instructions or technical generators that control his work processes. Continuously modified by corrections and reflections, simplifications and denials, the images thus gain their poetic aspect from a delicate visual attack on familiar patterns of pictorial conventions. The “Folienbild”, a transparent tarpaulin, painted on both sides with varnish, focuses this visual provocation. His images interpret and radically counteract the tradition of monochrome and concrete painting.
