Eric Stotik: FUGUE
August 10, 2015
Showing from September 8 - December 13
Opening reception Tuesday, September 8, 5-7 pm.
For his latest exhibition, Eric Stotik has spent two years creating a continuous painting that is 5 feet high and 45 feet long. The painting consists of 11 panels that connect to one another almost seamlessly and present a vast array of imagery both beautiful and terrifying. If brought together, end-to-end, the piece would have no starting or stopping point, functioning as an unending, dreamlike narrative. Incorporating human and animal figures in natural and manmade settings that compel further investigation, Stotik’s work probes a darker side of the human psyche, aiming for, as the artist says, “insight with a gasp.”
