Description

The starting points for Havekost's painting are manifold-from his own photographs, an ad from a fashion magazine, or an illustrated book that the artist received as a gift in his childhood, to images from television, films, and the Internet. As he develops his subjects, he may digitally edit the images and then use the techniques of painting to reflect on the function and role of pictures as well as their authenticity. What do we actually see? How much reality is contained in the surface of things and their depictions? Where do content (in German, Inhalt) and meaning exist, and how do they get deformed into something different and new?
