Obama and Michelle
Eric Haacht’s work is dark, disturbing and dream (or nightmare) like – Dirt Cheap loves it. The expressive portraits where facial features swirl in a frantic dance atop fairly conventional shoulders definitely remind me of the way faces can appear in dreams, I am reminded of Michel Gondry’s ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’.
Haacht has a new website of work, you can view here.
His Facebook is here.

The art of Dirt Cheap
Some new work from Oliver Lancaster Smith, 3D collages created for a private buyer and a sketchbook page. This work, along with most of Oliver’s work is based on everyday experiences and thoughts, put together in a way to try and recreate the complex thought structure and wide range of emotions and experiences in daily life. Finally producing a confusing and detailed piece which has a level of depth, both physically and metaphorically. The aim being for the audience to see the piece as a whole and then have the ability to focus in on a section and find new imagery and ideas.
