Over the last few years Alan Corkery Hahn has created a rather large body of work. Hahn understands that the meaning of each piece is not limited to that which he intends, but it is hyperbolic to suppose that nothing of Hahn's original intention gets through. The objects that he creates are formed with a purpose that guides interpretation.
A variety of Hahn's work has dealt with the following ideas, either individually or in combination: text and its meanings, the primacy of touch, authorship/ownership and art as a commodity, Wabi-sabi and the aesthetics of imperfection, personal identity, gender roles and subjectivity. The thread that connects it all, however, is the persistence of touch, the permanence of our marks and the inviolate nature of mortality.
The final products are obscure and delicate monuments memorializing insignificant victories in the futile struggle against impermanence and the march of time. They point out that our struggles to leave a mark sometimes leave nothing but marks of our struggle.
