Häsler’s concern is not to depict a painting with photographic preciseness; his major point is to make a conscious creative decision on which details are to be accentuated. Not every finesse is elaborated within his paintings, some details remain merely suggested. Häsler differs from other photorealistic painters because of the intriguing contrast he creates between meticulous preciseness and deliberate fuzziness. As in the painting «Bar de noche, 43nd Street, New York» of 1992, some elements are represented with means of graphical aesthetics. Those non-elaborated sections reveal the way in which Häsler proceeded to paint his photorealistic oeuvres: Häsler’s work did not consist in just copying photographies – in contrast his working process included several drafts, sketches and color surveys. His main concern is not to give an account of the truth, but rather to construct an abstract reality, prone to idealization, which, to the artist’s regard, is more capable to depict the atmosphere of a specific place.
