“GE-OM-E-TRY”, n., the mathematics of the properties, measurements, and relationships of points, lines, angles, surfaces, and solids. Is there anything we see that cannot be broken into these geometric shapes?
Hansen begins his pieces with an original or series of photographs he has previously taken. From there, he creates additional shapes enhancing the image using Photoshop’s myriad tools. The evolution from start to finish allows him freedom to explore beyond the bounds of traditional photography.
Hansen has been exhibiting his photography in the US and internationally for over twenty years. Hansen’s dominant focus in his art is the constant employment of imagination. Because of constant creative invention, various themes wander into new and exciting visions. As a consequence, Hansen does not maintain a signature style. But, one constant is his interest in art that brings something from the inside out, rather than capturing observations of the outside world. It’s a process that demands a deep exploration of states of mind and mystery. Marjorie Kay of Galatea Fine Art said, “There is a coolness of vision in the photography of Erik Hansen.”
