Painter Hans Haveron’s new series “Black Diamond,” which began Dec. 9, will be on exhibited until Saturday, Jan. 7 at C.A.V.E Gallery in Venice.
For this solo exhibition, Haveron has created a unique series of paintings in the elegant allure of a black and white palette – where each piece reveals a complex and captivating beauty, said a gallery spokesperson. His technique is both natural and flowing accented by the technical detail of a fine line, representative of the artist’s signature style.
“This palette was inspired by the experience of living in an urban environment, where the grays of concrete, the whites of street lines and city lights, and the blacks of asphalt are a constant imprint in the visual mind This work is the jacket that matches the urban stacks, and the city is the stylist on the shoot,” the artist explained. “Within the subject matter of this work, I explored the ‘end of the world’ theories – referencing temples, symbols and garb of the ancient eras – but painted from a ‘Futura’ perspective.
“The black and white palette is also reminiscent of old photographs, which in my mind represent a classic as well as timeless look.”
Haveron has created exceptional artwork for Hollywood films such as Disney’s “Enchanted.”
C.A.V.E. Gallery is at 1108 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice. The gallery’s winter hours are noon until 6 p.m., Thursday through Sunday. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday by appointment only.
