Eric Katzman is a lifelong artist based in New Hampshire, known for his large, bright, and abstract paintings. His work is driven by the idea that memory is “easily deformed and plastic”, and he uses this concept as the seed that shapes his internal dialogue while painting. Katzman’s visual vocabulary is grown and developed through impressions and memories, pruning and discarding elements while emphasizing others like a gardener.
In addition to his successful career as an artist, Katzman is the co-founder and owner of Katzman Contemporary in Dover, NH. The gallery features a wide range of art made by emerging and seasoned artists alike, showcasing his commitment to the art community.
Katzman’s mark-making is characterized by the gentle unfolding of surface, interplay of form, undulating lines, and hard geometric shapes. His works, painted in the past eighteen months, create non-functional visual narratives of memory, challenging viewers to see the world through a different lens. Katzman’s dedication to exploring memory and the creative process has resulted in a body of work that is both thought-provoking and visually stunning.
