Kyle Hackett is a visual artist primarily working in oil painting. Manipulating the authority of representational portraiture, his work deconstructs historical ideas of secure identity and fixed-painting techniques in an attempt to clarify his contemporary insecurities about racial and socioeconomic conditions. Hackett examines concepts of double consciousness, highlighting the tension between the self and the construction of image.
