The Art Of Hacne - Out Of Control

Hacne is a Kyoto based illustrator, who captivated us with her surreal compositions starring distant, disconnected looking subjects trapped in strange, desaturated worlds. Based off some of the titles and information regarding the pieces, her ongoing theme revolves around feeling disconnected or detached from reality/society, which we've noticed to be a somewhat popular theme with Japanese illustrators (Check out our recent feature with the artist called Thine).

The contrast of soft figures in these highly geometric, nearly abstracted settings definitely pushes the feeling of disconnect, as well as the fact that the protagonists are typically trapped, drowning, falling or in perilously high settings sells the fact that the artist doesn't feel in control. Check out more of Hacne's illustrations after the break.
