Eric Zener

It’s tempting to allow Eric Zener’s impressive hyper-realist technique to become the focus of my appreciation of his work, but in truth, there is something I appreciate far more; Zener’s uncanny ability to layer complex emotional states into frozen moments of seeming tranquility. The swimmers and sun-bathers in his paintings may find themselves in idyllic settings, but their minds are elsewhere, transfixed in states of introspection. The end result of this contrast, for me, is almost hypnotic.
