Eric Abrecht’s oil on canvas landscape paintings have an abstract, understated quality. He is more concerned with depicting “color movement and dimension” than a specific place or scene. Drawing from life experience, he allows the subject of each painting to evolve as he works the canvas.
A resident of Towson, Maryland, Abrecht has been exhibiting at Southside since 1996, having obtained a BFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in 1991. His work resides in numerous private and corporate collections throughout the U.S. as well as the permanent collection of the Portland Museum of Art.
