About:  Originally from Montreal, Canada, Karen Roehl moved to Denver as a youngster in 1967. She has enjoyed living in the growing and vibrant Mile-High City, where she raised her two daughters, Vesla and Andria.

Roehl began her artistic career when she completed a design program at the Art Institute of Colorado in 1987. She enjoyed a successful career as a graphic artist for over 20 years, the last eight of which were spent running her own design business.

Satisfying a life-long desire to expand her creative talents into the fine arts, she entered the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program at University of Colorado at Denver in 2004. Roehl continued working with graphic design while attending classes full time. She was the recipient of the Colorado Scholar’s scholarship award in 2007, UCD’s Fellowship award in 2006 and 2007, and completed her BFA degree in December 2007, graduating magna cum laude.

 

Beyond the Veil

April 1, 2016

Caleb Hahne, inspired by John Baldessari, Clyfford Still and Henri Matisse, builds upon his previous work to analyze the current state of contemporary figurative painting and his place within it. Continuing with his practice of remixing, providing a fresh contemporary approach to established methods and forms, he begins by re-rendering images appropriated from the Internet using a combination of wet and dry mediums applied to panels and book covers. Allowing his imagination free play, he expands his technique by adding blobs of primarily pastel colored house paints like silhouettes in the foreground. Similar to Baldessari’s use of color, the blobs tend to break down or reduce the information but also serve as new sources that are key to understanding the content. Hahne’s images hint at shadows or phantoms that allow the viewer to peer beyond the veil and into a new array of meaning. Through his new work, Hahne explores the tension between representational figurative drawing and abstract mark making.

About: Caleb Hahne (b. 1993) graduated from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in 2014 and currently lives and works in Colorado. He was an artist in residence at ShowPen in Denver from September 2013 to August 2014. His art has been included in multiple solo and group exhibitions in Denver, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Montreal, Berlin, and the United Kingdom and most recently at MCA Denver as well as the New Museum NY in collaboration with Adidas. Hahne has been featured in Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, and Booooooom.com. Denver Westword named Hahne one of the 100 Colorado Creatives of 2014 and one of the Top 10 Artists to watch in 2015. He is also listed as one of the top 10 contemporary artists under 40 by Wide Walls
