Eben Haines Artist Bio:

Eben Haines is a Massachusetts College of Art and Design-trained painter who deconstructs the classic subject of portraiture and human figure in ways that brings out the complex and chaotic aspects of their inner life, focusing primarily on the increasing degradation of societal infrastructure. The object, the artist, and image present themselves simultaneously in his work, through layers of paint that cover and uncover the image in ways that reveal the artists hand and emphasize the history and emotional journey of the subject. He recently won a Mass Cultural Council Fellowship Finalist Prize, as well as being named one of Creative Quarterly's "100 Best of 2015". Haines lives and works in Boston. "Setting soft and supple nudes and unorthodox portraits against seemingly textured backgrounds, Haines utilizes the tension between abstraction and realism to appease his own inner dichotomies and create art that expresses emotional complexities. But unlike many artists who muddle the polarities of figuration and abstraction into ambiguity, Haines leaves them distinct, engendering a contrast that intensifies the impact of each." —Amadeus Magazine
