Eric Thomas Wolever

A bearded man wearing a black beanie and a denim jacket.

Throughout his career as an artist, Wolever has always explored themes of landscape, upbringing, and personal landmarks. First in the form of installations, and now as complex, layered paintings. Utilizing a combination of acrylic and ink, Eric pulls a depth of memory and experience into a condensed form. He cites his midwestern upbringing as his main inspiration for his work, drawing from his summers spent skateboarding, the lattice of nylon porch chairs, and weathered basketball hoops. Eric invites us to observe these artifacts within his context, and within our own. The resulting narrative is one half-formulated by his work, and half-constructed of our own experience.
