About the work
Eric Freeman
American, b. 1970
Follow

Working in oil on canvas, Eric Freeman produces dizzying, abstract compositions that combine elements of Color Field Painting, Op art, and the works of Mark Rothko, Ellsworth Kelly, and James Turrell. Freeman masterfully applies his color so that it appears diffuse and gives an illusion of artificiality and three-dimensional space. In Hyperbole (2012), a series of horizontal bands in variations of pink, gray, and black populate the canvas, while a shaft of vertical light appears to illuminate the center, creating an illusion of depth along its edges. “I always use as little paint as possible to allow light to pass through the layers of paint to the surface of the canvas,” Freeman says of his process.
