To say Hawk Alfredson’s oil paintings are Surrealist doesn’t touch on all his styles. Even adding Magic Realism and Symbolism to the mix seems limiting. He creates visionary portraits, mystical objects and abstract circles based on the subconscious world of dreams. Alfredson’s influences include artists René Magritte, Hieronymus Bosch and Odd Nerdrum, film director Ingmar Bergman and writer Carlos Castaneda. “I want to transport the viewer into an altered state of consciousness,” he said, “[relating] to the images filtered through their own reality. Some see beauty where others can only see pain.” The Tim Faulkner Gallery will host the opening reception of Alfredson’s solo exhibition on Friday, Nov. 6 at 6 p.m.
