Late Fall Exhibitions 2008

Thanksgiving

T. R. Ericsson's is a confessional art, manifested in a rich variety of media and unsparing in its self-examination. Though his work frequently deals with the minutiae of his own life, he touches largely on issues that are common to all, not least love, mortality, and the pursuit of meaning in life. Ericsson's art is one of disclosure, using his life events in works ranging from story telling, drawing, video, installation, photography, book works, and sculpture.

Thanksgiving, a new installation by T.R. Ericsson in the Euclid Avenue Gallery, memorializes an individual’s voice. The exhibition is accompanied by the 14th edition of Thirst, Ericsson’s self-published, serial bookworks, and a collection of previous editions, many of which include three dimensional elements. Ericsson has also generously created a multiple for sale to benefit The Sculpture Center.

Thanksgiving is being held concurrently with Narcissus, a complementary exhibition of Ericsson’s recent graphite drawings at SHAHEEN modern and contemporary art, located at 740 W. Superior Ave., Suite 101, in downtown Cleveland, opening Nov. 15 and continuing through Dec. 20.

Ericsson lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, and Concord Township, Ohio. His work has been shown in one person and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad, including at Paul Kasmin Gallery, NY (fall 2008), Heidi Cho Gallery, NY, and Bronx River Art Center, NY. His work is in the collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, the Progressive Corporation, The Cleveland Museum of Art, the Pfizer Corporate Collection, New York, the Museum of Modern Art, the JP Morgan Chase Collection, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
