Eric Shaw

150 Wakefield Street, Rochester, NH 03867

Eric Shaw is a self-taught painter whose bold geometric abstraction draws from the rich visual environment of New York City. Elements of graphic design found in street signs, logos, and advertisements are stretched and skewed as Shaw sketches out what he sees using a drawing app on his phone. The sketches are further copied, pasted and shifted using image editing tools, and then translated onto canvas by hand with acrylic paint. The final work, often incorporating several of the digital sketches in one composition, is a complex conversation between lines, shapes, and color shaped by the functionalities of the imaging tools he implements. His acrylic on canvas paintings are both highly improvisational and painstakingly precise.
