Eric Reinemann was a finalist for the Gottlieb Foundation Prize, a recipient of the North Adams Project Award, and a guest speaker for SUNY Plattsburgh's Visual Artist Series. His studio is currently located in the Greylock Works building (East Studios), in North Adams, MA. He is open by appointment and during open studios.

Reinemann's layered abstractions rely on the structure of the visual world, which he takes apart, interprets, and rebuilds to create unique representations of time and place. 

Born in Albany, NY in 1978, Reinemann found his way into art through landscape photography. He studied painting at SUNY Plattsburgh and went on to receive his MFA from the University of Oregon in 2003. Since then he has actively shown at universities and galleries across the country, most recently at Coker University, UMASS Amherst, and UNC Asheville. 

I am a process oriented artist exploring themes of boundaries, transformation, and time. Working with two primary subjects--the landscape and domestic interior--my works express the sensation of change encountered in everyday living.

 

I work in series, with each focusing on a particular period of time or a unique experience. The subject matter, medium, information gathering means, and time available to clearly focus, all dictate how a series is approached and concluded. 

 

Painting, over the last twenty-six years, has offered me an expressive and creative means to make sense of life's complexity.  My process, while it is dependent on the structure of the physical world, is a means of transforming, with the end goal of establishing a connection that can only be made though color and pattern.
