Hani Isac’s painting expresses a profoundly intuitive experience of the Australian Landscape. In a time where we have all been severely restricted in our travel and freedoms, Hani Isac believes that we can reconnect to our emotions through art.
Hani, mixes dreams and reality into something he defines as an absolute reality, a “super-reality” . an expression of his experiences within the Australian landscape, created through our shared challenges of forced isolation. Through his isolation during the lockdown he was able to reconnect with his previous source of inspiration found in nature through his art. He found this personally transformative and as such a powerful representation of hope.
The latest paintings are complex in layers, spontaneity and are powerful in composition and color. They are profound in freshness and originality.
The artist exploits abstraction and is an exponent of the practice of automatism. He finds strange beauty in portraying painterly gestures, disregarded or found objects within the painting surface. He is also attracted to the uncanny, and the unconventional. He is an artist whose approach takes various twists and turns, but never ends. As soon as the eye settles, it is taken on another journey into a different reality.
Hani Isac struggles with what he feels are the oppressive rules of modern society, which he believes are fueled by over rationalism. To Hani, the source of artistic creativity comes from the unconscious mind and pure emotions. He believes that all thoughts start with feelings, and feelings are evoked by color and composition. These are then translated to thought. His works focused on exploring notions of the irrational and the subconscious, as a means of breaking free from the rational order, and evoking pure emotion.
