“Life is hard enough as it is, so I try to paint the things that make me happy.” – Eric Christensen

Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery is host to a comprehensive set of Eric Christensen art, including the limited editions. The artist’s still life watercolor paintings are must-have conversation pieces in transient accommodations and restaurants especially in the countryside. Hanging them in contemporary dwellings with monochromatic motifs guarantees a blissful transformation because of the quiet elegance they exude.

Back to Back, an illustration of two first-rate wines, Far Niente and Cakebread, is an invitation to take a break from the hectic modern life. It reveals Christensen’s incomparable talent at composing reflections. In the artist’s own words, “The two things I am most often asked about are reflections and how I paint glass. I always paint the wine in the glass first. The upper part of the glass must wait until the background has been established. As I paint each background element through the glass, I take into account this distortion created by the curvature of the glass, the highlights which must be left white, and the subtle, and the shadowing being reflected by the other objects in the painting.” Truly one-of-a-kind!
