Haessle makes sure that his sense of color forms the basis of a remarkbly structured work of art. He proves that the molten hues he investes the paintingwith are so strong as to furnish a supporting structure for the composition. Who would have thought that so much could have been done with the color alone? Haessle's imagination leaps and bounds as it has done for more that four decades leaving a heritage that is as expansive as it is intelligent. Building on past achievements, the artist establishes new ones, in ways that are his alone.
