After a series of drawings were destroyed, Eric L. Porter was forced to reset his art practice and examine the relationship between his identity and his drawing. The result of this exploration is his newest series Moonlight Insight. He explains in his artist statement for the series:
“These images came to me after a local vendor ruined an entire series of my work. My full-speed creative productivity came to a dead stop, and my ever-present drawing skills disappeared entirely. The crisis of identity hurt much worse than the ruined work – if I can’t draw, who am I?
“Insomnia visited regularly during this trauma, and we talked about the experience and fallout. After several weeks of pondering facets of Loss, I gathered materials, went to the studio, and … stared at the materials.
“Each of these images presented itself to me only after I quieted my mind and spirit – no easy task at the time. I found that examining an issue by quiet, inquisitive moonlight (real and metaphorical) led to surprising insights about the truer nature of the issue.”
The artist's book #Me Too -Persephone re-imagines the Greek myth
from Persephone's point of view, and within the context of the
#Me Too movement.
I'm excited to announce a handmade, limited-edition of 50 copies of my newest book #Me Too -Persephone..
