Eric Breish, known for his abstract paintings on metal that create holographic illusions, engages the viewer in mesmerizing planes of light and color that constantly shift before the eye. Using a combination of tools and unique methods, each mark on the metal is strategically placed to absorb and reflect light, creating the dimensional effect that separates Breish’s work from tradition abstract paintings. Aluminum, copper or steel are the substrates on which he works, while layered transparent paints and varnishes create a glass-like finish that enhances depth, dimension and color. For nearly a decade, Breish has apprenticed under renowned artist and innovator of metal art, Andreas Nottebohm.
