Looking both at and through, Christian Haub, artist interview
Christian Haub was interviewed by Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe for Bomb Magazine.
I can’t call the Floats paintings because I don’t use paint, but they hang on the wall and come from painting, I think they could be called “shallow reliefs.” When my wife, Vera Miljkovic, photographs them she has the problem of where to focus. There is the physical surface of the plastic, and then there is the colored light cast behind it on the wall. As you once pointed out, you look both at and through the works.
