Mixed Medium on Canvas, 54 x 5 x 65 cm
About the artwork
The characters portrayed have wide-eyed expressions and balls of paint are scattered across the surface of the canvas like free electrons. There is a euphoria that is present, a representation of the elixir of youth. The atmosphere is vibrant and dynamic, with the circus ring and spectators seeming to loom out of the canvas. One feels like a child again, absorbed in the vivid and captivating spectacle.
About the artist
Eric Chomis was born in Lyon (France) in 1965 where he now lives and works. He studied History of Art at Lyon University and at the School of Fine Art known as the "Beaux Arts," but before long he returned to his own diagrammatic approach of conceiving art which he discovered when he was sixteen. He considers himself a self-taught artist. Although his painting has been influenced by the Paris School of Thought, it isn't easy to label as his approach is often closer to that of the Singular Art Movement. He was discovered in 1991 and his work has been regularly exhibited throughout France and Europe: Paris, Amsterdam, Belgium and Switzerland. The painting of Eric Chomis features as a real landmark of an imaginary adventure. Each painting tolls a departure. An invitation to journey back over our own path: that of childhood and its landscapes. The artist discretely suggests we seize the link between the past and the present, reality and experience, consciousness and the unconsciousness, lightness and depth.Go to Eric Chomis's profile ›
