Piece description from the artist
This original is a mixed media still life on cradled panel.
Eric Bohr discovered art early on, although back then he was primarily interested in music. Always having had a deep wonder for painting but initially intimidated, he didn’t seriously pursue visual arts until much later. Eventually, and with the encouragement of a friend who recommended the book "The Artists Way":http://amzn.to/pbMEiH Eric decided to again try his hand at producing physical art.
When Eric discovered the work of "Jasper Johns":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jasper_Johns and "Robert Rauschenberg":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Rauschenberg he became truly inspired. Eric too believes in the power of objects as relics, and feels that these things have their own story to tell.
Soon after moving to the Bay Area Eric got his first canvas which allowed him to incorporate these objects in a way not possible with paper. From there on it has been a study in materials and process. Each canvas is another in a series of lessons.
