Item Description

Mixed Media on Board

12" x 12"

Don Hartmann has exhibited in numerous venues in Boston and Worcester since 2001. His work has also appeared in varied New England publications.

Artistic Statement: In the past I have used Polaroids as a point of reference for a template. I have now switched to making collages out of my own photos (be it digital/film.) The work I now create is larger scale-wise and thematically. I like to enlarge the scale for more visual impact and to further investigate process to the end result (i.e. paint, impasto, and textural qualities vs. the overall rendering or correctness of the subject.)

My style is accidental. I had no intentions of being a painter…just a lucky experiment. I use everything I can get my hand on. I have come to know the things you are not supposed to do…mixing combinations, application, etc., but it has been a part of the process; lessons from failure. Texture and image are the biggies. It is about how the paint is applied but also has to be an image; a situation captured.
