Using the devices of photographic representation, Eberhard Havekost exposes the complex processes by which images are interpreted and inter-related. In Carpark 4, the picture is cropped to extreme close up; a scene read as momentary glimpse or â€˜snap shotâ€™. Through painting, Havekost transforms this plebeian view to create a disquieting experience from the overtly familiar. Editing the image down to its most functional elements, Havekostâ€™s painting becomes almost pure abstraction: the windscreen is a field of fluctuating depth, framed by compositional blocks of colour. By selectively emphasising and omitting an imageâ€™s qualities, Havekostâ€™s paintings operate like memory. Their associative form becomes subliminally dismantled for intimate contemplation and rumination.
