Eric Aho

Eric Aho is an American artist whose paintings are equally concerned with the physical immensity and intimacy of the natural world as much as with an ever-evolving process of extract-ing spiritual experiences discovered within it. His energetic, gestural painting process uses lively marks and swaths of color to create richly applied paint that morphs between abstract expanses and the contours of nature. Aho’s work develops primarily from his own experience and memories of the landscape. He references broadly and freely from the history of art—responding to a wide range of works from Poussin to Constable, and from Winslow Homer to Ellsworth Kelly to inform his compositions. Aho lives and works in Saxtons River, Vermont.
