Bruised sunsets, sleek vintage cars, twisted album covers and distorted movie stills are all subjects that preoccupy Eric White, a New York-based painter whose work is laden with surrealist flourishes. Looking at Eric’s work feels like sitting in some grubby Brooklyn cinema, watching a late-night special that gets weirder and weirder as you give in to sleep, or browsing in a record store run by some lunatic that paints his own covers. That’s not to say that Eric’s a lunatic – although he does paint his own versions of classic record sleeves – but he’s channeling something darker and more urgent than the pop-culture images he references, imbuing them with sinister connotations that unsettle and unnerve.
If you fancy treating yourself to some unsettling imagery you can see a collection of Eric’s work in his new show All Of This Has Not Occured at the Martha Otero Gallery in Los Angeles from Saturday November 9.
