'Eric Haacht is a self taught portrait painter. In a remote part of the UK, the eighties born artist has been painting for ten years. The first portrait was painted in 2011 and since then he has only painted portraits with the goal to explore a concern with the 'immediacy and the artificialness of life (and death) and a yearning to demonstrate his hunch that time and form are a mere ruse'. His future plans are to continue the habit of wanting to find the line where distortion and obfuscation seem to be a movement away from form.'
