In the Crowell Gallery through February: C. Peter Erickson
On the Way By  Painting en Passant 
Crowell Gallery, January 5th – February 27th, 2021
Moore Free Library, 23 West Street, Newfane, VT
 
C. Peter Erickson applies the original French chess definition of ‘passing through’ to his art, establishing the world’s impermanence, its placement neither here nor there, but somewhere along the way.

“For many years I was most interested in painting with oil on canvas, eventually trending toward incidental objects caught in motion; En Passant. For this approach, I found airbrush techniques, once relegated to photo retouching, to be well suited for depicting the world moving before my eyes. I find it interesting when practical and commercial techniques such as airbrush, film photography and screen printing pass through a period of obsolescence to later become available for making art. This, too, is an expression of the passage of time.”

The airbrush technique he employs in his recent work enhances the feeling of moving through an event, sometimes slowly and gently, and other times wildly propelled. Peter attributes his work to the fact that he has always liked “making stuff”, and in 1980 became an architect. Following many years of construction project management, he has been biding his time by making paintings, unencumbered by the constraints of structure and gravity.

Peter will be available at the gallery January 9th and 23rd between noon and 2 pm, His work can also be found at  https://www.cpetererickson.com
