“Art, for me, is about design . . . a flat pattern on a two-dimensional surface that resists its own flatness at every turn and keeps trying to insist that it has space. My art plays with this intersection between the illusion of space/subject and its reality of flatness/pattern. It is a
response to the exuberance and beauty of people and nature and also a conversation with other artists and the way they captured something about the world; fromPersian miniatures to the Nabis. And finally, art is about beauty; I try to convey the beauty of the subject while creating beauty in the patterns that convey its illusion.” – Eric Brown
