Long fascinated with incongruous images, Hahner’s work frequently employs “simple” subversive elements that upsets the overall effect. The exhibition also displays Hahner’s ongoing fascination with natural history and employs in subverting a painting with aberrations centering on extremities such as hands, feet, as well as everyday items like pots and bottles. The key that links these disparate objects is an element of surprise.

Hahner says, “I am attracted to the the idea that doing art is like going to confession and changing something negative into something positive. Depending on your perspective that could be read as Metamorphoses, double meaning, or better still, ambiguity over what is exactly what, when?”
