Large formats and bold colours applied with rapid brushstrokes are the salient features of Friedemann Hahn’s paintings (b. 1949). Their various titles, such as “Painting and Guns”, “Glauser”, “Le Samourai”, or “Lichtung (after E. L. Kirchner)”, embody diverse, complex frames of reference. Hahn's work revolves around stories drawn from literature, art and the temperaments of individual artists, the milestones of film noir, as well as troves of works from popular culture. Hahn is particularly fascinated by modern legends about people who wander along the brink of their individual social event horizons, a theme he negotiates anew time andtime again.
