Eric has shown in galleries in the US, Canada, England, France, Mexico and India since 1971. His work is in public, corporate, academic, and private collections.
The acrylic paintings on canvas and prepared panels vary in size from small preparatory studies to large panoramic works. These paintings were made in our studio in a small village on the central Pacific coast of Jalisco, Mexico called “Costalegre” (contented coast). They are part of a body of work called “Birds of Paradise.” The work depicts the flowers and the birds I see on our rooftop terraza at night and in the early morning. I am also interested in the ancient drawings of birds as spiritual messengers and the paintings often include references to these symbolic images.
