Erik Barthels

Erik is a contemporary abstract landscape painter who lives in New Orleans, LA.; he shows with Serena & Lily. Of his work, he says “working primarily with squeegees and trowels, I make quickly rendered graphic paintings on paper.  I then collage them, cutting and refiguring to create new, unexpected compositions. The works exist in a duality, combining their hard edged geometry and a fuzzy, weathered quality that retains their handmade nature.
