The Art of Eric Wert Boxed Notecard Assortment

$16.95

American artist Eric Wert is known for visually intense, sensually charged still lifes that are anything but still. Whether on small or large canvases, his larger-than-life oil paintings nearly vibrate with saturated color and decadent detail. His expertly shaped fruits, vegetables, and flowers approach realism but go beyond its limitations. Not surprisingly, Wert (b. 1976) began his career as a scientific illustrator. Influenced by Dutch still life painters, he uses stunning jewel tones to depict sumptuous subject matter, taking traditional compositions in new directions. Wert notes that with close observation, the complexity of his everyday subjects becomes ever more mysterious.

Eric Wert

In his Portland, Oregon, studio, Eric Wert (American, b. 1976) creates still lifes that are the hyperrealistic stuff of dreams. In a veritable flood of sensual detail, he pulls the genre out of the Dutch Golden Age. Wert honed his observation skills as a scientific illustrator at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. Before long he broke away to create oil paintings of flowers, fruits, and vegetables that defy traditional constraints. He uses stunning jewel tones to depict decadent subject matter, with natural and manmade objects arranged as a tumultuous comment on the wonders of life and death. Bees, butterflies, snakes, and other critters find their place in Wert’s work—a modern master’s complex observation of natural mysteries.
