Lyrical, haunting, yet poignant at the same time, Eric Fortune’s paintings make lasting impressions. These are characters who are neither out of place in the world, nor at home in it, they are characters wrapped in their own worlds.
The emotionally complex metaphors Fortune paints are richly evocative.
His imagery is quiet yet dynamic, and seasoned with a touch of surrealism that takes us to captivating places, beyond our everyday experience but filled with truth.
Packed with emotional nuances he creates soft yet riveting lighting and atmosphere.
With uncompromising patience and discipline he slowly builds up his luminous characters and worlds until they radiate life.
