Milton GlaserOne of the key inspirations for Concentric is Milton Glaser’s graphic style of art-making. Glaser, renowned for his imaginative and playful designs, made a significant impact on Eric. One of Glaser’s works that particularly influenced Eric is “Saratoga Festival” from 1980. The work captures an idyllic fantasy portrayed through the lens of a Pan figure overlooking a serene lake. The blend of fantastical elements and harmonious color treatment stirred Eric to translate this graphic style into his own generative art series.
Hilma af KlintAnother source of inspiration for Eric is the groundbreaking work of Swedish artist Hilma af Klint. The exploration of geometric forms and spiritual concepts in af Klint’s work, specifically in “Svanen (The Swan), No. 17, Group 9, Series SUW,” deeply resonated with him. Despite the fact that this work was never exhibited during af Klint’s lifetime, its impact on Eric’s Concentric series is palpable, informing his usage of circle forms as a principal element.
Wasilly KandinskyCompleting the triad of artistic inspirations is Wassily Kandinsky’s “Color Study. Squares with Concentric Circles” (1913). Known for his radical approach to color and texture, Kandinsky’s influence is mirrored in Eric’s daring use of colors and varied textures. Kandinsky’s work, crafted using watercolor, gouache, and crayon on paper, is transmuted into the digital sphere by Eric, showcasing a fusion of traditional and contemporary mediums.
