Artist Spotlight: Erik Minter

Over the weekend, I spent some time exploring some blogs and art based websites and came across this collection of canvas paintings by artist Erik Minter. The goal of his work was to combine abstraction with the concepts of “surreal figuration”. A lot of the collection reminded me of the work we completed as a class throughout project 1.3. The fluid strokes in my opinion symbolize grand motions and activity and the vibrant colors Minter uses gives me a strong sense of a variety of emotions throughout the paintings that are all up for interpretation.
