Wave Hill is a garden/horticultural center with a gallery space. The show Tending Toward the Untamed asked the artist involved to create work that responded to the garden in some way. Erik's first piece involved spliced, pixelated, randomized video taken of the garden throughout several seasons projected onto a painting of the garden. The other had video of the process of creating the painting projected onto the finished painting. Take a look!

It was a great show, and I was able to have some great conversation with Christine Licata, the curator. I recommend you check it out - it'll be up through the summer!
In other news,
Here are some recent drawings, trying to suss out the various techniques I've been developing in prior drawings. Ultimately I'd like to gain a mastery of these techniques that frees them from their representational subject matter and allows them to function conceptually on their own, still speaking of the grasping for truth and meaning through the revealing and concealing of Aletheia merged with the divinity of a correspondence model of truth, and the grace of working with the given.
