Eric Sall's paintings embody fluid gesture, emblematic shape, and eccentric pattern to create abstract canvases that are seemingly familiar yet distinctly individual. Ranging from the intimate to the monumental, Sall's signature, sophisticated approach employs an open characteristic throughout.
Combining geometric shapes with gestural abstraction, pattern, and movement, Sall’s paintings are impactful and always interesting. The work does not give you all its got at first glance. Meaning emerges through use of clever titles that parallel the imagery, from canvas to canvas and from past to present.
