This group of work, which includes some of Eric's more recent pieces, consists of smaller series and individual inspirations.
It contains whimsical pieces and political pieces. Complex images and simple ones. Often text is incorporated, but not always.
The common thread among all these pieces is the intention to engage the viewers with a visual or conceptual juxtaposition.
SERIES: WORDS OF WISDOM
In this series, aggregated into blocks of text, selected quotes are carefully arranged, and the letters shaded to reveal recognizable individuals or historical subject matter. This structure enables a visual experience when observing from afar and a reading opportunity when up close.
The quotes and resulting image are inextricably linked with the quotes serving a duality – configuring the image itself and revealing background and insights about the subject matter. If successful, the observer will not only enjoy viewing the image but also reading the words, gaining a new perspective on a figure or subject matter that they otherwise didn’t have.
SERIES: REBIRTH OF THE PIXEL
Anything can be broken down into its basic components: cells into atoms, philosophies into ideas, buildings into bricks and images into pixels. An individual component, seen up close or evaluated in isolation, reveals little if anything about the whole. It is only at a distance, conceptual or physical, when the whole can be appreciated for what it is.
It is with this framework that this series relies on Legos as the fundamental building blocks of the images. The Legos are the pixels, reminding us of the common elements that make up every person and thing. Up close we are all the same. With distance, individuality is exposed. The use of monochromatic blocks allows the viewer to focus on the process, texture and composition.
This digital series is designed with the sole intention of delighting the eye with variations of a 3-dimensional sphere. The spheres are characterized by vibrant colors, precision, repetition and the occasional symbol.
Meant to be shown individually or in tandem, these images are perfect for any room.
