Artist statement

Eric Length paints visions of landscapes. Nature is as much a practice as it is a motif. The paintings are made in a way that resembles how nature works; in altering states of appearance and dissolution that follows its own organic logic. His motifs are fleeting and transitory, and the impressions of them is a reminder of the gap between the material and immaterial. The paintings work as a bridge between those two worlds.
