From up close Heidi Hahns artwork appears abstract enveloped by a velvety cover, but here too it is the expanse, the stepping back from the image that lets the observer enter into a new sphere.

Sanguine light, broad horizons, a coloration which is touching: these dominating factors in the work of the German artist Heidi Hahn combine the palpable with the abstract view of reality and thus create a visual and perceptional plain beyond reality, but also beyond abstraction leading away from external images to internal ones, away from solely seeing to feeling - to a long missed return to romanticism.

Living lights, endless horizons and colours which touch your soul, those are the dominating parts in the pictures of Heidi Hahn. They connect concrete with abstract sight of reality. That`s how the pictures gain to reach a level of representation and sensation beyond reality, apart from the pure picture to inner sights, away from the pure seeing to emotions.

Heidi Hahn`s style of painting: endless fine layers in oil or acryl colour. Depending on the direction of the light falling in, the colours are reflected in different ways, always show different sights.

So the pictures become, depending on the way of consideration and sight, always new, individual shapes and structures, composed of light and emotions –the new romanticism.
