Schoos Night Gallery is pleased to announce as its premiere exhibition: Paul Ecke: Mechanisms and & Meditations. For over 30 years, Ecke has created paintings that are an amalgam of color, texture and movement achieved through application of oil and acrylic paints, all applied by brush, hand and even trowel. In this body of work, which consists of his well known industrial paintings and also newly developed waterfall series, the artist has experimented with reclaimed materials paired with digital media to tell a comprehensive narrative about the connections between humans and industry. Deep within each of his works is the concept of the vast connectiveness between us as a global population and our own personal inner spiritual dialogue.
These works have brought Ecke back to his earlier influences where the artist exemplifies his original techniques of constructing and deconstructing a composition so that the work is self evident. For many of his new works, Ecke has enjoyed utilizing resin paired with mixed media techniques to create a unified marriage between the technological and traditional approaches to art making.
Paul Ecke has been a full-time contributor to the contemporary art world since 1985. His works are in the collections of the University of Michigan Museum of Art, Michigan , De Saisset Museum of Art, Santa Clara, Crocker Museum of Art, Sacramento and Chapman University, Orange.
