How many exhibition works:
For his 2-month stay in Bonn, Jeff Hallbauer put together an intensive program of visits to exhibitions and museums in the Rhineland and continuously expanded his network in the local and regional art scene. – On the other hand, he used the time in at DAS ESSZIMMER to develop new works that can now be seen at the end of his stay in his solo exhibition DerDieDas / TheTheThe.
In his current works, Jeff Hallbauer deals with personal mythologies, using found images that he finds in public image archives such as the Internet, but also in private photo collections. From them he constructs new references and pictorial truths that oscillate between romance, love, lust, attraction – and the darker side of human existence such as repulsion, violence, envy and addiction, as Alex Gibson, an artist from Barbados, who lives and works in Vancouver/BC, describes in his text about the exhibition.
Canadian artist/painter Jeff Hallbauer, born in 1986, lives and works in the unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh nations, also known as Vancouver. He studied at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver/CA, which he graduated in 2009.
Since 2008 he has been exhibited regularly in solo and group exhibitions, mainly in Canada, but also internationally.
