September 15 through December 31, 2014



Eric Gibbons is a painter, musician and half of a performance art duo, The Muistardeaux Collective. This solo exhibition at PCS will be his first in Portland. His work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States including at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Worth Ryder Gallery, University of California at Berkeley; Gescheidle Gallery, Chicago, IL; and the Art Palace Gallery in Austin, TX. Of his work, the artists writes, “Certainly, my paintings are improvisations; chance and risk tethered only by intention.  My intention then, is to make interesting paintings full of interesting choices.  There are themes and motifs I return to again and again-the horizon, clouds, un-identified flying objects-but they always emerge from improvisation and intuition; I make no sketches or studies.  In doing so, I sustain freedom in my work.  This is vital to success in painting.” His work will be featured in the forthcoming issue of New American Paintings, which is slated to be released in December 2014. http://ericchristophergibbons.tumblr.com
