Garrison Art Center is pleased to announce PAINTINGS, a solo exhibition of oil paintings on canvas by Eric Erickson. This is Erickson’s second solo exhibition in the Riverside Galleries at Garrison Art Center. The exhibition will be on view from March 21 – May 3, with an opening reception on Saturday, March 21, from 5-7pm.
PAINTINGS is a collection of works that depict uncertain terrain where spacial relationships are constantly shifting and objects are in a state of suspended animation. Pedestrian in nature and presented as diagrams, these assorted objects, all fragmented, their identities diminished through abrupt truncation, inhabit a world where nothing is required to make sense. These seemingly simple forms come and go, entering right, exiting top, or breathing through the surface barely perceptible, like ghosts, embedded in multiple layers of scumbled paint that leave visible traces of what lies beneath —an assertive use of pentimento. Exactly what are these objects intended for and what is their relationship to one another? Pipes, faucets, bricks, wooden planks, 3-dimensional geometric forms and sections of wooden footboards can all be part of something useful and practical in our daily lives, when actually connected to something, but in Erickson’s hands they float in a kind of limbo. Humor and pathos operating side by side. Time stands still for the faucet, and function is never a consideration.
The Riverside Galleries at Garrison Art Center are open Tuesday through Sunday 10am to 5pm. For more information about exhibitions and other programs please visit our website www.garrisonartcenter.org or call 845.424.3960
