Title: Eric Bohr: invocation
Artist: Eric Bohr
Dates: Feb 15th - Mar 24th
Time: Check Venue listings.

Multi-media artist Eric Bohr presents invocation, a show of new work at Mercury 20 Gallery. Working intuitively by using the practice of mindfulness to set intention, and then letting the work proceed, the artist began each piece with a sense of openness. Allowing for the interplay of artist and medium, the pieces were guided and coaxed to a sense of completion by the push and pull of subject and object. While creativity is in motion there is agency for change. Choices are continuously being made, evaluated and revised. The artist is especially interested in showing this in the finished work, leaving the evidence of process in place.

Eric Bohr is a member of Mercury 20 Gallery and Ragged Wing Ensemble. He was born in Lansing, Michigan and studied painting at Michael Jacobs Fine Art in Venice, California. He lives and works in Oakland.
