File 83179

Eric LoPresti (b. 1971) is a Brooklyn, New York-based artist making work about deserts, nuclear weapons and, color. His paintings and digital works juxtapose abstract elements with representations of the vast landscapes of the American west, tracking cultural representations of conflict and beauty within our transforming ecology. Following in the painterly tradition of the apocalyptic sublime, Eric explores how our lives are shaped by trauma and aesthetics.
