Transcending Nature: Paintings by Eric Aho
Organized by the Currier Museum of Art
June 2, 2012 – September 9, 2012
The Currier Museum of Art will be the first American museum to present a survey exhibition of Eric Aho's work. The exhibition features more than 30 paintings by the Vermont-based artist (born 1966.) His earlier works on view include dramatic, plein air paintings of landscapes influenced by such artists as Claude Monet, Paul Cezanne, John Constable and Frederic Church. Aho's most recent paintings are abstract monumental compositions – some as large as eight feet by nine feet.
Aho's latest abstract paintings capture the lived, remembered, and imagined experience of being outdoors. Through the unexpected use of color, vigorous paint handling and surprising compositions, his paintings make palpable the immediacy of nature and the intangibles of light and movement.
An illustrated catalogue featuring essays by the curators and an interview with the artist will be available.
