Influenced by the history of abstract painting as well as popular culture, Eric Sall’s work explores an interlinking network of visual language. Exploiting the physical nature of paint Sall’s surfaces evolve as landscapes of intuitive gesture. Champion the possibilities of creative expression, drizzly washes, impasto textures, flat patterns, and spontaneous brush strokes operate as formal devices while simultaneously creating subtle innuendos of figurative representation. In Interworld, Sall’s composition draws association to Philip Guston and Peter Halley, playfully evoking connotations to everyday experiences of architecture, commercial logos, and computer graphics within its sublime abstraction.
