Artist Bio:
Eric Anderson was born in South side Chicago, IL in 1985. He received his BFA
studying under painter Li Hu, previously associated with Shanghai University, now Los
Angeles based painter and sculptor Jeff Lipschitz, as well as printmaker Gail Panske
and sculptor Theresa Lind at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Anderson has
worked and resided in Denver, CO for the last decade on a large range of projects
which includes large scale drawings/paintings, mixed media assemblage sculpture and
performance. His work has been published in a number of journals including New

the spirit, automatism, deconstructionist theory, and interdimensionality.

Artist Statement:
Untouchable dimensions of the spirit
Come back
I don’t fear death
The misperception of loneliness
Broken window
Even if just for a glimpse
