Description: Eric Tillinghast is best known for his sustained exploration of water, a subject he has mined successfully in many ways over the years. His work gets to the core of sculpture (as volume), water (as elemental landscape), and Minimalism (as critical inquiry). At the same time, Tillinghast has explored three-dimensional form and color through reductive forms such as the ring. Although Tillinghast has been a resident of Santa Fe for a decade and a half, and this region was formative to his development as an artist. As an emerging artist, Eric has found national and international attention. This work broadens viewers’ understanding of his work as extending beyond water.
