Weekly Art Hit: ‘Untitled’ by Eric Eley
With the rains clearing up and the sun breaking through, here’s Eric Eley’s Untitled artwork from 2007 — part of a series of artworks by Eley creating atmospheric moments.
By layering simple marks, Eley creates dimension by repeatedly covering each layer of drawing with a thin coat of dry pigment, rendering a beautiful luminosity to the surface. The artwork consists of dry pigment, ink, colored pencil and graphite on paper.
The artist states, “Playing with the subjectivity of perspective and scale, my work questions the boundaries we draw between architecture, atmosphere, landscape and ourselves.”
Eley’s artwork is in Seattle Public Utilities 1% for Art Portable Works Collection.
