Hair’s work aims to visualise cognitive processes, often leading to a contrast between the imagined and the known. His recent work delves into the fusion of the human body against moments of organic abstraction and personal symbolism. Colour and line play together to reveal a surge, where the interplay of human and organic forms builds obscure imagery. Psychological theories of the alternative negative often mentioned as one’s own shadow remain a staple in these recent paintings. The works have black fields representing one’s own shadow that either twist and turn, or loom over as a watching spectator.
