Eberhard Havekost

Eberhard Havekost was a contemporary German painter based in Berlin and Dresden, who exhibited internationally. Born in Dresden, Havekost was the son of a taxidermist, he completed an internship as a stonemason in 1985. In 1989, he lived in Frankfurt, he studied at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Dresden from 1991 to 1996, where he became a master student under Professor Ralf Kerbach in 1997. In 1999 he was awarded the Karl Schmidt-Rottluff grant, he lived in Berlin, was a professor at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Havekost was one of a new generation of painters who used a digitalized, multimedial visual language in their work. Working from photographic sources – shots from TV and video, images culled from magazines and catalogues and his own photographs – he selected subjects ranging from anonymous buildings and trailers, modified them to make inkjet prints as the departure point for his paintings. Among the subjects which recur are nature, portraits or figures, architectural interiors and exteriors, means of transportation such as caravans and automobiles.

He painted series of repetitive images to replicate the serial change of visual effect in nature. The theme of a 2007 25-part series of paintings is zensur or censorship, the artist applies the concept of blocking or erasing something thematically or formally. Retina is a 2010 series of six oil paintings that deal with the optical perception of the world of objects and their abstraction. In 2005, art critic David Pagel described Havekost in the Los Angeles Times as "a promising painter so indebted to Richter's version of abbreviated Photorealism that it appears he has not yet come into his own". In The New York Times, Roberta Smith wrote that "the blunt dispatch and immediacy of Mr. Havekost's surfaces, while suitably laconic, run counter to the randomness and remove of the images, providing a necessary disconcerting tension." Works by Havekost are found in the stock of the Museum of Modern Art, the Denver Art Museum as well as in the Marx Collection, the Rubell Family Collection, the Frieder Burda Collection, the Tate Collection.

He is represented by Anton Kern in Galerie Gebr. Lehmann in Dresden and Berlin, he had solo exhibitions at the Kunsthalle Schirn in Frankfurt, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Havekost is represented by Contemporary Fine Arts in Berlin, Anton Kern Gallery in New York, Roberts Projects in Los Angeles, White Cube in London, among many other international venues. 2008 Eberhard Havekost, FRAC Auvergne 2008 Zensur 2, Galerie Gebr.
