Eric Abrecht's work appears in galleries throughout the United States. He focuses on landscapes, figuratives and still lifes, mainly with oil on canvas. At times he breaks from this medium to work on smaller pieces, usually acrylic and mixed medium on paper. Abrecht works conceptually, drawing from lifetime experiences, and allows the subject of each painting to evolve as he works on the canvas. "I start more with a rough idea than a blueprint," he says. Rather than title his work, Abrecht gives his paintings "generic" names. This allows viewers to apply their own feelings and experiences to each piece, without bias. "I want people to connect with my work in a way that is completely different from the person standing next to them," he says. Eric Abrecht lives in Baltimore, Maryland with his wife and two children. He is a graduate of The Maryland Institute, College of Art.
