For his sixth solo exhibition at Anton Kern Gallery\, German pa inter Eberhard Havekost has put together a body of 15 paintings under the t itle “COPY + OWNERSHIP”. The title declares the painter to be both author a nd consumer of the images he presents. Havekostʼs meticulous and confident painting technique and evidently photographic reference material make it cl ear that he does not try to remove the images in his paintings from their o riginal context\, but instead proposes a reimaging of circumstances surroun ding each one. The automated arrangement of colors in a video test pattern as we see it on a television screen becomes the exacting labor of a painter mixing colors and layering brush strokes. The act of copying the source ma terial is the precise means by which the painter stakes his claim of owners hip.

\n

The work opens itself up in the act of looking/viewing and references to the source material (newspaper/mag azine clippings\, images drawn from digital media\, and personal snapshots) pulse in and out of the viewerʼs consciousness. Color fields\, atomic test s\, images of bathers\, a tattooed palm tree\, and blurry images taken from flat screen televisions all question our perception of reality as we exper ience it moment to moment transforming ephemeral images into objects of sus tained contemplation.
