Every week ArtisticMoods invites an artist to tell us something about the ambitions behind their work. This week: Brooklyn-based painter Jody Erickson.
Painting for me is a reflection. A way to visualize my emotions. I find that creating new work is very calming for me. This seems to translate through the painting, a serenity that carries to the viewer. I consistently pursue beauty and mystery in my surroundings and in my pieces. The natural world and our relationships with it are central to my work.
