Eric's Dante's Inferno Series Featured in Lecture by Dr. Micah Christensen

I wasn't aware of this lecture until today.  I came to find out that my Dante's Inferno series was featured in a discussion during a lecture in November 2017.  Click the youtube video above to listen.  My work is discussed around 1:02:00 and talked about for a few minutes.  It is an honor to be recognized in the context of this discussion.

 

This is the first in a new lecture series by Dr. Micah Christensen (PhD, History of Art, University College London) meant to arm artists and art collectors with a greater understanding of how to approach art. (Go to artisticarsenals.com for additional episodes in the series and an accompanying reading list.) Each lecture is a series of slides with the lecture and comments from the audience recorded in real time. In this lecture, Dr. Christensen met gathered with a group of artist from the Beaux-Arts Academy to talk about how to read and understand paintings that often seem out of reach due to historical, cultural, or aesthetic distance. They include works by Rubens, Holbein, Titian, Rothko, Malevich, and Ai Weiwei.
