The shape at hand offers basic folds, limitless possibilities. Sleek, angular and pointed, it doesn’t reference the familiar…

Building on his first experiences, decades ago, creating one precise fold and another and then another, Hacer’s previous shows have offered familiar animal forms. In “The Fold” he has chosen to pare things down by constructing a collection of 21 sculptures made from a single, non-objective form [and its opposite].

The choice, an ambitious one, is a reaction to an internal need to return to the essence of creation without the weight of pre-existing archetypes.…By presenting a single form, he offers viewers an opportunity to appreciate the folds …By extension his practice and creativity is highlighted. This is his work at its purest form, something akin to a painter’s single, emotive, powerful brush stroke.” [Abridged, Bunkerhill Magazine ]
