up in the southern tip of the Shenandoah valley, Eric has had a
lifelong affinity for the colorful and oftentimes “surreal” culture that
is ‘The South’. A history major in another life, Eric’s love of the
‘southern gothic’ from a historical perspective helps guide his unique
style that adorn the walls of his gallery. However, the one factor that
is mostly responsible for the unique concepts within his imagery lies
elsewhere... the majority of his works are based upon his darker and
more intense dreams. As Eric states, “there is nothing more terrifying
than one’s own dreams. It is our own inner psyche that can truly
frighten the hell out of us more than anything else in this world. To
visually manifest those moments of ‘subconscious frames’ into a piece of
work that I produce in a conscious state, is not only very challenging
but even somewhat illuminating about who I am”.
