Robert Green Fine Arts presents new paintings from Mark Erickson.
From artist interview by George Teseleanu for Press 1 Magazine:
I think of my work as traditional abstract painting, but I slip in humorous aspects, cartoonesque shapes which enables me to have the freedom to experiment with mixed media, collage and drawing. My interests in literature, comics and music are incorporated to their fullest potential with this style of painting.
Scurrying images and resurrected ideas from my past and notations of the present lead me to each new canvas. I want viewers to see things, experience a moment in my painting. Whether it something lyrical or an impact of color, shape and illusion I seek to keep the eye moving.
Collage elements are sometimes added to take the painting into another arena. The need to feel something that may not be there at first glance, but to know it is there, obscured momentarily, reminiscent of a long gaze into the void that one creates out of nothing.
