Eric Forstmann Brunch
December 16, 2012
John O’Hern, the Santa Fe Editor of American Art Collector, describes Forstmann and his work, “My long-held belief is that something of the artist inevitably lives in his art and is experienced by the viewer. [Eric’s] paintings embody his intention to make us see what he thinks we may have overlooked or to see familiar objects again in a new context. They do that well. We construct our own narratives about the objects which are sometimes randomly and sometimes carefully arranged on tabletops and within cubbies. In our lives we may not give the objects a second glance, but in Eric’s paintings we are invited to look at them as they relate to one another in size, shape, and color, animated by light and shadow. The paintings are gentle but engaging, humorous but thoughtful. In this way they echo the personality of their maker.”
This event will begin with a delightful brunch including complimentary champagne. The meal will be followed by Eric Forstmann presenting a Gallery Talk about his artwork and his life as an artist. This program will not only provide a great opportunity to hear what goes into the creation of some of Forstmann’s works, but it will also offer a chance to meet the artist himself.
