Eric Aho's fresh and vibrant paintings evoke immediate familiarity with a heightened sense of atmosphere. Using dynamic brushwork and a memory-based approach, the artist strives to capture the essential equivalent of his natural experience. Each brushstroke reveals a keen understanding of sophistication through austerity.
Of his work Boston Globe art critic Cate McQuaid has written "Vermont painter Eric Aho’s spectacular landscapes...could swallow you up. He’s a gestural painter, not afraid of broad, dramatic strokes that bracingly straddle representation and abstraction...thick, luscious brushstrokes that could have been made with a house painter’s brush...Aho’s tones are no less vibrant than his gestures."
