ROBERT HAGUE: ERASURE

|In Robert Hague’s lithographic prints, individual objects are isolated for close|
study as the artist draws out the meaning behind their form and function. Rendering his images with crayon upon stone, elements from disparate sources are seamlessly blended for an inventive conceptual dialogue. His Trojan Hammer series sees Hague evoke a cunning deception.
The blunt instrument of choice, a hammer, becomes an agent of destruction and subterfuge, as it hides within otherwise benign objects to illustrate the contradictions they hold disguised. While in his more recent Plate series such illusions have been broken. Colonial dreams shift towards a dystopian reality, their instability reflected in the broken forms of the fine bone china plates he depicts.
