Merging Art and Nature

 

FOR a good part of seventeen years, Eric has been immersed in formulating and fabricating his ideas and experimenting with a disciplined assortment of noble materials.  That list of ingredients has morphed over the years to include repurposed timbers and aged wooden barn siding, patina’d sheets of metals and mirror polished metal alloys, casting from molten aluminum,  Raku fired ceramics, off the shelf industrial engineered products such as concrete, saw cut blocks of stone, and animal hide. 

 

Originally exploring his ideas from a studio in Shelter Island, and then later in Brooklyn, he more recently has moved back to Vermont to live and create. Each of his individual works, as well as the esteemed collections, highlight the richness of tones and textures embedded in his discerning material pallet. 

 

A masters degree in, and general life passion for, the natural sciences, while moved by the Japanese ethos of Wabi-Sabi, combine to articulate the organic modernist approach he takes in the formation of his works. From concept to form to realization and patina. Eric celebrates the beauty of imperfection, and encourages the natural time-marinating created during the aging process. Unrefined surfaces contained within percipient proportions, merged with a keen understanding of bio-centric processes, accurately describe the path and practice taken. 

 

The angular weight of his sculptural monoliths, and signature designs, have been notably inspired by the sky-scrapper architectural shapes that dominate horizons of this geological epoch known as the Anthropocean. But for him, nature is the true force in the end, so all works are woven together knowing that the reclamation forces of nature are guaranteed. 

 

Eric’s works have been celebrated in both private and public spaces and collections since the early Ots. He is very grateful for the opportunity to have an audience for his ideas. Where the focus has always been utmost on inspiration and creation, for personal challenge, and the resulting inner warmth it generates. Eric is moved that his works also provide a curiosity, joy and delight for others.
