Erik Foss

New York, NY, USA


American,   —   Erik Foss mines pop culture to create his layered works. His paintings and collages incorporate images that spur the viewer’s nostalgia or their melancholia, but in ways that contort the memories they evoke and thus the reception of his works: in one beloved Bugs Bunny takes a tab of acid, in another photographs of Albert Einstein and the Obamas are layered into a chaotic collage along side images of women’s bodies and dripping paint reminiscent of graffiti. Erik’s works ask us to examine the uncomfortable underbelly of popular culture and consumerism. Erik has had solo exhibitions at Castor Gallery, NY; Gallery 3, San Francisco; and Gallery Steinsland Berliner, Stockholm. His work has also been included in exhibitions at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art; Christies, NY; and the Watermill Foundation, NY.
