The Modern at Art Place
D.C. Artist Eric Hagan will unveil his “Mirrors Series” with an opening reception on Friday, January 7 from 7-9 p.m. Eric Hagan’s art experiments with familiar patterns easily discernible as human in an unfamiliar way. Comprised of faces, along with the emotion they communicate to us, that are distorted and interwoven into amalgamous forms, cascading outwardly from the center. His mosaics play with shifting perspectives altered with almost every distance and angle from which they are viewed. There are several motivations for the development of this style, which have driven him to cultivate it over the past 15 years. Like his shimmering mosaics of incongruous parts, people are also full of contradiction and beauty. To focus on one small aspect of them is to allow the entire picture of their character to disappear. Only when we step back does the full scene come to view, allowing our eyes to adjust. The series will run through January 21.
