this is the best to describe the works of Eric Waugh. Waugh has created
a viewpoint that scans the horizons of a growing future and brings that
vision to the reality of a work of art.
His paintings strike a sensitive
and harmonic concordance in color and feeling, creating an atmosphere
that seem to usher in the new millennium. Although all of Waugh's works
of acrylic and mixed media are one-of-a-kind, they are however linked
with a deep thematic vibrancy.
His paintings are seemingly riveted
together with the artist's characteristic gold-dots which act as points
of unions to harmonize the ethereal color sand images of each piece
into a unified rhythmical composition. Flowing from his natural artistic
talent and through progressive experimentation with various methods and
media, Waugh creates abstracts mainly of a non-subjective nature. Although
, recently his work is taking on the graceful yet interpreted elements
of the human structure in an embracing ballet of form, texture and
Waugh has also reached beyond the bound of the two-dimensional
wall to realize an ideal blend of painting and sculpture which would
in fact bring his images into open space. Eric does this in a number
of varied ways.
In collaboration with his cousin renowned potter "Alice
Pace" Waugh encompasses his image on a unique and functional vessel.
He also has designed the Mesa-like fashion and mounted on a pedestal
Recently Waugh has released his two-dimensional images on to
a three dimensional wooden form. Waugh's rise through the art world
has been overwhelming. Born in Montreal in 1963, he is self taught
in every artistic aspect.
He gained experience in the field of graphic
illustration and product design before turning to fine art in 1988.
Since then his popularity with art connoisseurs has escalated to the
point where his is represented in galleries in virtually every major
city in North America.
His paintings have been acquired by hundreds
of major corporate and private collectors worldwide. Exquisite balance
of rich iridescent color, subtle texture and timeless graphic images
in combination with the great creative diversity and passion for painting,
place Eric Waugh on the contemporary, refreshing edge of today's
international art market.
