BOLT Residency

Eric Wall

Eric's works are generally stretched canvases and works on paper that encompass a wide variety of subject matters including empty interiors, landscapes, architecture, as well as formal issues like space, pattern, and perspective.

These works are cropped, cut, folded, pierced, stitched, and manipulated; they refer to many of painting's long-running concerns with genre and narrative, pictorial space and illusion, color and texture. Wall participates in the tradition of Western painting while being fully conscious of the issues in the contemporary practices.

He has exhibited paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and installation art in the US, Germany, Denmark and Sweden. His solo exhibitions include shows at the Chicago Artists Coalition, Chicago; Villavägen Sju Galleri, Sweden; ISM gallery, Denver; and Colorado State University. His work has also been included in exhibitions at the Cave Gallery, Detroit; Shoot the Lobster, New York; Lill Street Art Center and The Built Festival, Chicago; Galleri Ett Annex and Galleri Linne in Sweden; the Space Gallery, Assembly Art Space and The Den Gallery in Denver; and Jack Curfman Gallery, Colorado State University Directions Gallery, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Fort Collins in Fort Collins, Colorado. His work has been covered in the Chicago Tribune, Crain's Chicago, Kulturstan Sweden, Detroit Free Press, and Matter Journal.
