Bill and Hans Haveron: Raven's Riddle
Kirk Hopper Fine Art is pleased to announce that it will be the showcase for the first Father/Son exhibit for renowned Texas artist, Bill Haveron and his son, Los Angeles artist, Hans Haveron.  This exhibit represents the fruition of a lifelong dream for both Father and Son. The interplay and overlap of their careers is a source of conciliation, healing and redemption, resulting in a deeper understanding of the role and purpose of art in their lives.
The show is entitled Raven’s Riddle – a reference to the family name which was originally spelled Havran in the original Czech, meaning “the Raven,” but anglicized to Haveron upon immigration to Texas. The title is also a nod to the common threads of interest pursuant to problem solving and mischief making, a theme prevalent in both of their works.
The show will feature the familiar surrealistic and symbolic styles in which both men characteristically work. Dense with imagery and fecund with meaning, their works exhibit an interplay of diverse literary devices: metaphor, allusion, simile and analogy, amongst others.  Typically, the works represent a path of self-discovery and a spiritual evolutionary process –the struggle between the forces of good and evil ever present.
These philosophical riddles are transcribed upon large drawings, paintings and a few examples of painted assemblage from Daddy Bill.
This exciting show represents the deep bond achieved between the two men, using art to overcome every vicissitude of life and the quotidian challenges facing the proverbial “everyman”.
