Based in San Francisco, Eric Larson has been creating paintings, drawings, collages, and installations in the Bay Area for nearly a decade. His work deals with the idea of time through repetition and pattern. Consisting of found objects, newspapers and other, sometimes outdated printed materials, the work is created slowly and methodically to mark time with a specific material until a project is complete, anywhere from a few weeks to a year. The repetition of marks and materials creates a surface texture that is similar to a textile. Larson weaves these materials together to create personal geometries. The end result, an accumulation of various colors and shapes in an endless variety of patterns, offers an entry point into a conversation of time, age, and our tendency to pass by the seemingly inconspicuous.
Eric Larson's show "Methods of Sight Reduction" will run from February 4-27, 2012.
