Eric Zener

Bio

Eric Zener was born in Astoria – Oregon on 1966. Eric has been painting for over 25 years. He is best known for his paintings with water as a primary element. Water has been the source of a variety of narratives: spiritual and physical renewal, taking the plunge and nostalgic memories of play and fun from childhood. Eric has always been intrigued by our relationship with nature – from its transformative qualities to produce joy to its equally transformative quality of fear and danger. He enjoys exploring this relationship with nature not only through his water paintings, but also through what he categorizes as “Journeys”, “Land” and “Sleep”.
