French, Eric

"For the past sixteen years, I have concentrated my efforts in searching for a better understanding of the possibilities surrounding the use of traditional and non-traditional methods and how these affect the conception of the work itself. Before I begin to work on a series, I concentrate on developing a thesis, where a lot of the primary work is researching written information on the subject. Then I try to imagine ways to get from thought to thing and try to apply the same frame of thought into the process of creating the work itself. A second phase will be concerning materials and colors, some of which I make with pigments and mixtures of pigments of my own recipes. After this I move into the selection of the materials that I will use or the ones that best suit the project, whether exploring academic methods like painting, drawing, or sculpture. I also explore more contemporary methods, such as digital imagery, photography and film."
