Item description for Eberhard Havekost: Benutzeroberflache / User Interface by Heiner Bastian...
Eberhard Havekost is the youthful shooting star of the internationally acclaimed Leipzig School. His images, dubbed "photoshop realism" by critics are cool and distanced.
Havekost makes the on-screen computer image the direct subject of his painting. The user interface is his painterly theme and how the images appear on it, electronically manipulated, or rather beautified and illuminated from behind. Simple, almost trivial objects filtered electronically and mutated are painted to canvas by Havekost. Mutants of reality transformed into paintings that exude a mysterious bleakness.
Our book, edited and complete with an introduction by Berlin art expert Heiner Bastian, offers an overview of Havekost's oeuvre to date and is being published on the occasion of an exhibition at Anton Kern Gallery, New York.
