Eric Blum Art

American, b. 1956

Eric Blum was educated at UCLA, St Martin’s College of Art and Design in London. Blum’s layered arrangements of ink-washed, wax-infused silk are rooted in modern painting techniques, yet activated by the experimental manipulation of his media. While initially drawing inspiration from the world around him, he dives into his work blindly, putting his materials through a process of layering, rotating, covering and uncovering, until he settles the elements into a visual anagram; no longer resembling his preconception. The ambiguity of Blum’s references and the elusiveness of his narrative are beguiling. Its parts don’t always go together, and when viewed anew it becomes something other than itself. Creating work that is more desirable, poetic or preposterous than when it began.
