The new paintings by this young emerging German painter have a distinct magic realism style. Hahn is widely exhibited in Europe, where his paintings are likened to Magritte’s for their symbolist themes and illusionism. These are sensuous paintings that propose the viewer question how one draws meaning from figuration. Hahn’s authentic looking realism, in tandem with unrealistic subjects, brings a heightened awareness to the question of what the meaning might be, without unsealing the hermetic narratives with in.
