Eric Steffensen
Eric Steffensen, Arizona, 2000 - 2001

In landscape, Eric Steffensen looks to the feeling of color and remembramces of the history of Art, especially painting ( Turner, Friedrich, Emil Nolde, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, and Hammershøi). He prefers spare and empty landscapes, which correspond to nothingness in thought. The nothingness is surrounded by color and evokes remembrances and stories. He often writes texts to his work. His work is about the fright of nothingness and loneliness, but it has humor and irony.
