Artist Statement

Brazenly visual, Kurt Erickson’s work draws the viewer in through his fresh, vibrant canvases. Growing intuitively out of passing thoughts, emotions and life experiences Erickson’s artworks grasp aspects of graffiti art, punk rock and urban grit. His approach to painting integrates a radical embrace of the subconscious mind. Using effortless gestural marks, he allows fluid brushstrokes and the intersection between the intentional and the subliminal to guide his process. Consciously integrating bright, dynamic colors, his works elicit the sensation of free-spirited spontaneity. His paintings encourage one to pause and let the mind wonder. He seeks to make visual art that invites the viewer to consider a new perspective, a more thoughtful way of looking at life.
