CHRISTOPHER HAUN

Charles Christopher Haun

American

(b. Macon, Georgia)

1971-

California based artist Charles Christopher Haun grew up in the deep south and the southwest. Haun is a polymath; a colorist and a painter as well as a critic, curator, and published author. He makes work about tantric energy forces within diametric structures ie. light and dark, natural and virtual, structured and amorphous, ordered and chaotic, geometric and organic. With a background in math, science, architecture and music, the artist earned his BFA from the Otis Art Institute, Los Angeles, and participated in BFA Residency Program at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, as well as the MFA Program at University of Southern California. Haun has over two decades exhibiting in art institutions including galleries and museums.  He has shown in many galleries across the US as well as the Contemporary Art Center, New Orleans, Louisiana, the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University, Malibu, California, and the Marjorie Barack Museum at The University of Nevada, Las Vegas.  Haun was a recipient of Peter S. Reed Foundation Award in 2008. His work is included in Creative Artists Agency Collection, Los Angeles, the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation Collection, Beverly Hills and Francis J. Greenburger Collection, New York. Haun's work has been reviewed in Huffington Post, Art on Paper, and LA Weekly.  Haun currently  lives and works in La Jolla, Calif., where he surfs the local reef breaks.

     Haun's work can be considered in terms of tantric energy forces that are concomitantly working together and against one another in diametric structures ie. light and dark, natural and virtual, structured and amorphous, ordered and chaotic, geometric and organic. Concerning the cyclical nature of holistic human existence, Haun's meditative contemplative works induce a moment of curious self-awareness that furthers a mental shift toward the divine and the sublime. This perpetual mental shift reduces the constant bombardment of visual noise and cultural commotion down to a moment to reconnect with ourselves.

 

             -"I’m interested in making art works that are equally intuitive and calculated, that are seemingly becoming whole even as they are disintegrating, and that are simultaneously recognizable and unidentifiable. My works have to elevate the mundane towards the sublime, to transform ordinary everyday occurrences into extraordinary life-changing events."  -       CC Haun
