Eric Aho: Headwater

Yrjö, 2021 by Eric Aho

Eric Aho debuts a new series of paintings in Eric Aho: Headwater now on view at the Burlington City Arts Center, Burlington, VT through June 5, 2022.

A "Virtual Artist Talk" is planned for April 6th at 6pmEST. Visit the BCA Center exhibition page here to register for the talk, tour the exhibit & Eric's studio, and to view the entire BCA Center gallery guide for the show.

Featured in the guide is Eric Aho's compelling and powerful Artist Statement about his work and what painting from life and nature is:

"... The landscape is a hanger of sorts on which to drape new observations and curiosities. In it are infinite arrangements and possibilities for painting, and clues to the enduring modern puzzle of figuration and abstraction.

These new works are vestiges of actual places, each unearthed, reshaped, and reconstructed in the studio compelled by memory and invention. They're immensities made intimate; painting them is an attempt to wrangle time and reality ..."

The DC Moore Gallery in New York will present Eric Aho: Inflection Point opening on January 5th with a public reception January 12th. The exhibition, on view through February 4th, focuses on two on-going series of works—Ice Cuts—shown last year at Dartmouth College’s Hood Museum of Art and reviewed by Sebastian Smee, and—Mountains—which has not previously been exhibited. A catalogue will be available.  Also, the Boston Globe has just named last winter’s exhibition Ice Cuts at the Hood Museum one of the standout exhibitions in New England for 2016, which will be the first time showing this body of work in New York City.
