The Alta Arts presents "Inarticulate Paradise," the first major exhibition of all new works in over a decade by American abstract painter David Hacker, and his first showing in Texas. 

Hacker’s paintings are purely abstract, featuring bold color choices against natural tones, and heavy marks both in the form of brush strokes and scrapes. The organic blocks of color and meandering brushwork together create a psychedelic space, that is also reminiscent of the deep forests in the Catskills around Hacker’s studio.

His artwork is a sort of removed simulacrum of his life and experience. He echoes his journey through the painting process, reconciling with imperfection, allowing for chance, and pushing forward in his search for knowledge. Each painting functions as a view into a world that the Hacker is still building, and in which he is ultimately recontextualizing himself through an ever-expanding idea of reality and of existence.

Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display until December 18.
