i would like to draw your attention to the work of a friend of mine with whom i went to film school. Eric Cator is an artist and blogger based here in Toronto whose exquisite work explores our physical and emotional relationships with the spaces in which we move about. here is a portion of Eric's artist's statement, taken from his website:
"In my paintings I explore how space affects us physically and emotionally, and how we mark and alter space with our presence. This exploration has led to several series of paintings, and while these works are diverse in style and content, the ideas they explore are all firmly rooted in the collision between the physical world around us and the internal world of the self."
Eric also has a marvelous daily painting blog, showcasing the work of other brilliant artists as well as some of his own. check it out here
