Artist Eric Shaw at The Hole, NYC

Trails – new paintings by Eric Shaw on display at New York City based gallery, The Hole.

On view until November 19, 2017, New York City based gallery, The Hole currently presents ‘Trails’, an exhibition of new paintings by Eric Shaw. The exhibition includes 7 abstract paintings of geometric shapes in rich colors. “Shaw’s paintings are inspired by the diverse commercial graphic design that is ubiquitous throughout New York City. Referencing memories and photographs of logos and signs, he uses a smartphone application and his forefinger to create digital drawings of these motifs which he then executes onto canvas with acrylic paint. Improvising and inventing as he goes, Shaw sculpts the compositions piece by piece until the thicket is as dense as it can sustain.” – The Hole
