Eric Wert

Observation was crucial to the Dutch masters of the 17th century.  A fact that Eric Wert and the classic painters have in common.  With their internal glow and intricately painted tapestry backgrounds, Eric’s paintings raise the still life to new levels.  He has a knack for painting the real and making it surreal.

Eric was born and raised in the Willamette Valley, and lived in Chicago for several years. He returned home to live and work in Portland 9 years ago.  During his career, he has been very fortunate to have artwork included in over 100 exhibitions and art fairs across the U.S. and in Europe.  This exhibit with Hellion will be his 13th solo exhibition, and his first in the Pacific Northwest.

The subjects of the paintings in Stomping Ground are all local.  Some are unique species native to the region, such as the Northern Red Legged Frog; others, like the Bull Thistle, are invasives with which we are all familiar. These paintings are inspired both by observations of the distinctive flora and fauna of the Northwest, as well as by study of 17th century Dutch Golden age painters, such as  Otto Marseus Von Schrieck (1613- 1678), who cast an enlightenment age eye toward the beauty, strangeness and complexity of the often overlooked natural world.
