About the Show:
This intense year of introspection and exploration has resulted in a new body of work from Eric Peterson. The inspiration for this recent work is cultural identity as expressed through dress and embellishment. These paintings explore “adornment” through building and excavating layers of paint, wax, stencils and collage capturing some of the beauty and mystery of our multi-cultural world. Eric’s palette and approach are influenced by this worldwide richness of pattern, color, texture and design. In this series, Eric celebrates the complexity of being human.
