About the Artist
Erik Barthels (b. 1980) is a Mandeville, Louisiana-based painter creating colorful abstractions that harness the power of chance to explore color and form. Working primarily in watercolor and thin washes of acrylic, Erik uses a squeegee to spread thin washes of pigment across his paper to create fluid arches of organic pattern. Erik's languid compositions are occasionally obstructed by collage elements that supplant the subtle nuances of paint with hard-edged geometries.
