Come by and view the wonderful paintings of talented in town artist Eric Marston at our Inman Park location for the month of June.
marstonAbout his work, Eric says:
“My influences come from my backgrounds in both animation and architecture. When I walk the city I enjoy looking in the allies and little side streets so when I paint the city I look for views people don’t often stop to look at and take the form of the structures and break them down to their simplest elements. When I paint the figure I aim to take there candid pose and push it into what could be considered a “key frame” or “contact” pose. I use knives to paint and this allows for my forms to stay loose without the precision I gain with a brush. Along with oils in both series I use ink to create the backgrounds of my figure work.”
