Eric Zetterquist’s art has always been about celebrating brilliant form. He is best known for abstractions that are derived from his photographs of ancient objects, which have been exhibited in museums and galleries in the US, China, Japan, Taiwan and Thailand. Often shown together with their “source objects”, the aim of the artist is to get his audience to stop and see - not just look - at beautiful form.
A lifelong auto enthusiast, Zetterquist has now turned his lens to the glories of brilliant automotive design. Using a similar technique, he photographs cars and amplifies the salient, form-defining lines. He then turns them into large, inky abstractions reminiscent of Asian calligraphy.
