The more I explore what I see, the more intriguing the world becomes. Curiosity, imagination, and intuition, are the driving forces that guide my process. 

Currently, I am focused on an idea that has been on my mind for many years: the concept of a 360 painting. This idea came to me in grad school. One day I had this awareness of what it was to be a tiny thinking being stuck to a giant mass as it spun around in space. It was moment that shook up the way I perceived the world around me. Intrigued by this new sense of placement and scale, I tried to paint it. 

I tried on and off for years, but I never had the technical skills to make it happen. The works always lacked a sense of cohesion and lucidity, until recently. 

My understanding of drawing started to change this year. The necessity of imagination and invention crawled in alongside the rigorous discipline of getting that line just right. This new freedom allowed me to interpret and edit without loosing sense of real proportions, creating a nice mixture of an idea and the real. No longer is drawing just a means of representation, it has become a means of thinking. 

Eric Reinemann was born in Albany, NY in 1978. Reinemann received his MFA from the University of Oregon in 2003 and BFA from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. His works are in public and private collections across the country. Reinemann will be presenting his new 360s at GF Contemporary in Santa Fe, NM this September.
