Eric Dever's Paintings Chosen for U.S. Consulate in Hong Kong
January 26, 2017 - Star Staff for East Hampton Star
Part of a decade-long series in which the artist has confined his palette to black, red, and white
The United States Consulate in Hong Kong is currently exhibiting two paintings by Eric Dever, who has a house in Bridgehampton. “NSIBTW-40” is an oil on canvas measuring 72 inches square; “NSIBTW-22” is an oil on linen of the same dimensions.
Both paintings are from 2014. They are part of a decade-long series in which the artist has confined his palette to black, red, and white. “Over time, I have come to associate this palette with shifting qualities of weight, energy, and lightness,” Mr. Dever has said.
The works were chosen as part of the U.S. Department of State’s Art in Embassies cultural exchange program. Other East End artists who have been selected for the program include Eric Fischl, Julian Schnabel, Cindy Sherman, Paton Miller, and Hope Sandrow.
