Iconography and patterning engage analogue materials while further exploring digital applications and new technologies.
Vinnie Hager (b. 1996) is an American artist and designer who lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland. He received his Associates Degree in Visual Design from Anne Arundel Community College in 2016 and has since gone on to study at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. He graduated with his Bachelor's Degree in General Fine Arts in Spring of 2021. His work is based in drawing. The elements he employs in drawings are made up of lines, shapes, characters, and symbols that connect through form and structure, similar to a jigsaw puzzle. This way of drawing allows Vinnie to generate his own iconography that ranges from the recognizable, like envelopes, flowers, eyes, and stars, to the abstract and the gestural. By combining his iconography in this way, his work becomes a cleverly harnessed motif which then he varies by scale, intricacy, and repetition. Hager adapts this motif to objects that veer from the traditional paper and canvas and into the ready made space of home decor, wearables, and the utilized. Hager's iconography and patterning engage not only in these analogue materials, but further explore digital applications and new technologies.
