reCreate Featured Artist
Eric Van Nielsen
Opening Reception  
Saturday, April 18th

Eric is a painter and re’s newest staff member. His visual art is created with traditional media, much of which is purchased from The Resource Exchange.  Eric is actively pursuing a path to more environmentally friendly painting, drawing and printmaking in his studio.

"I have long-imagined (and admired) paintings that left behind representational work in exchange for raw expression, primarily through color.  I only recently, finally committed myself to that artistic path.  The freedom of only utilizing color, painted forms and texture has been liberating for me, and a welcome challenge.  Color is the language of emotion, and I learn more of that language as I learn more about myself with each painting."

The work featured in our reCreate Gallery throughout the month of April will be an example of Eric’s current focus on improving the environmental impact of his work and studio. Each piece, aside from the artistic intent, marks the next step in improving his environmental footprint while remaining true to artistic aesthetics and traditional painting methods that are important to him.
Eric studied at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.  He has exhibited nationally in Philadelphia, California, and Texas.  He lives and works in the Philadelphia area.
