Caleb Hahne Quintana's artwork encompasses portraiture, landscape, and still-life paintings that capture his fascination with light and atmosphere. His work is imbued with a unique blend of history, as he explores his upbringing as a Jewish Mexican-American in rural Colorado. Hanhe Quintana underscores the intersection between memory and imagination and examines how we perceive and visualize our past experiences, and their importance in shaping our identities.
His work is characterized by a perceptive exploration of the relationship between environments and states of mind. His artistic approach towards familiar subjects is marked by a tender and deliberate attention to detail. Drawing, a stage that Hahne Quintana finds to be emancipatory, serves as the foundation of his creative process. Hahne Quintana employs an array of mediums, including coloured pencil, ink, and gouache, before culminating in the arduous task of painting. His body of work showcases the profound emotional responses that arise from place and memory, underscoring the impact of our surroundings on our psyches.
