Some Who Shouldn't, Do Anyway

Reason, Romanticism

Jason Hackenwerth illustrates perfectly what I discussed in Those Who Can’t Do, Appreciate. Building on the precedent set by the great S. G. Martin, Hackenwerth creates works whose merit cannot be disputed. He takes the medium to places never before seen. Note the technique and scope of his work. Consider him in terms of past masters of sculpture like Michelangelo and Rodin, as well as their present-day descendents such as Bobbie Carlyle. There can be no question about Hackenwerth’s rightful place in the artistic pantheon.
