Walter Hatke is painter and educator who specializes in exacting photorealistic paintings of buildings and interiors. Everyday America is rendered in bright precision, to an effect that he calls “crackling clarity.” Working from direct observation, Hatke seeks out unexpected angles, and many of his paintings merge several different perspectives. Hatke describes his style as utilitarian and draws from the descriptive tradition of Dutch painting; he also credits much of his work’s intimacy and clarity to his Baha’i faith—Baha’i translates to “follower of light.”
