Whoa. These are the paintings {oil and india ink on linen} of Brooklyn based artist Eric LoPresti. I absolutely love the combination of the lonely landscapes, washes of color, and perfect/graphic lines… oh, and they’re HUGE, ranging between 30″x40″ to 40″x65″!!! I’m sure, if you were to see these in person, that the scale would make these dramatic environments that much more eery. In Eric’s words, his work “investigates the cultural after-effects of dramatic conflict, focusing on the aftermath of the Cold War and its associated landscapes.” Chills.

{A few of his originals are available for purchase on Uprise Art}

    Loved his work the minute I saw it on Uprise Art last week! Just love the juxtaposition of those geometric lines. So perfect.

    PS– Congrats on the new site! Love the larger images and all the white space!
