James Hagen creates abstract landscape prints using a limited palate of colors, and utilizing optical illusions, reflections and contrasting graphic elements to create hauntingly beautiful images. Hagen’s keen eye captures the stark rhythmic essence of each landscape as a vignette. We recognize Minimalist and Pop Art influences in Hagen’s distinctive approach to presenting nature reduced to its most basic scenic icons.
