Eric's painting PENTAPLEX: Coming Attractions is included in the exhibition Masterworks: Defining a New Narrative at Long Beach Museum of Art, on view now through February 1, 2015. The show consists of fourteen monumental works that explore new narrative methods of making paintings.
Each of the artists have been charged with providing a singular work that could be considered pivotal in their careers, to which they have dedicated considerable thought, time, and skill. Artists featured will include Esao Andrews, Sean Cheetham, Natalia Fabia, Alex Gross, James Jean, Josh Keyes, Mario Martinez, Greg Simkins, Nicola Verlato, Eric White, Aron Wiesenfeld, Martin Wittfooth, and Curating Artist and Author Nathan Spoor and Co-curator Jeff McMillan.
The artists featured in Masterworks are from diverse backgrounds and their work connects a broad spectrum of genres, scenes and movements. Masterworks calls into question what a decade means to an artist, and summarizes the thoughts, theories, and personalities of each painter into one distinct moment. Within each work, the artists’ individual perspective is explored through childhood fantasies, everyday objects, and sensational dreamscapes. Each painting represents a decade of dedication to artistic excellence and creative expertise and signifies the product of a career’s worth of experience into one masterwork. The paintings in Masterworks drift between fantasy and reality while closely examining and disrupting conventional pictorial environments.
