WATER WORLD - Eric Zener’s Works on Panel
Diving, plunging, lunging, submerging…..the transition from one state to another. Eric Zener’s mixed media, water element themed works capture the principal moment of change as a body undergoes a sensual as well as physical change upon submergence.
This transition takes central stage in Zener’s work and is captured in breathtaking detail on panel. Zener chooses such moments of arrested movement to exaggerate, abstract, and play upon a hyper-realistic version of reality. An avid photographer, Zener’s mixed media works layer the photographic image with translucent layers of metals, dyes and paint to capture light and create dimensionality. Zener’s work transports and exhilarates combining elements of both painting and photography, both orienting the bodies in their surroundings but also emphasizing the vastness of the space beyond our control.
