Description

Born in New Jersey 1965, Eric Galbreath graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1985 while designing in a local advertising agency. After receiving his BA in Visual Art, Eric earned his Master of Divinity, continuing to design on a freelance basis.

In 1997 Eric relocated to Tucson. The wide open sky and saturated colors captivated his spirit. Designing full time, Eric began painting abstract works as a way to detach from the flat, artificially perfect world inside the computer. Using his hands to manipulate real, physical materials was just the needed catalyst for an explosion of light and color.

“I think the energy of life is a kind of random chaos,” Galbreath says. “Each of us makes some semblance of meaning, imposing order, rearranging, moving, and combining ideas, events, memories. We repeat, correct, update, and edit our histories, overlaying what has come before. Living is a messy process. And this is my basic approach to creating: layer builds on layer, simplicity gives way to complexity. The disorderly and the chaotic, over time, form a beauty, a logic, a composition arrived at, discovered and coaxed, rather than intended or forced. My challenge to the viewer: connect with my work from a pre-cognitive, nonverbal place; hold closure at bay; appreciate being in the moment with the beauty of ambiguity.”
