Eric Rippert is a visual artist headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. His work resides in the permanent collections of Cleveland Museum of Art, Columbus Museum of Art, Progressive Art Collection, Cleveland Clinic Art Program, and Dalad Collection at Worthington Yards. Exhibited internationally, Eric has had solo exhibitions at Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, Progressive Art Collection, and Maria Neil Art Project, along with curated shows at Cleveland Museum of Art, Minnesota Center for Photography, City Gallery, Prague, Czech Republic, and Ludwig Museum in Budapest, Hungary. He received his MFA in Visual Art from Vermont College of Fine Arts and his BFA in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology. For years, Eric practiced commercial photography in New York before relocating to the Midwest where he taught photography at University of Akron, Oberlin College and Baldwin-Wallace University. Eric began to exhibit his paintings in 2016 with shows at American Greetings, BAYarts, University Hospitals Triennial Invitational, CAN 18 Triennial, and the 2019 Biennial Juried Exhibition at Ohio Arts Council’s Riffe Gallery. His abstract paintings use a visual language of shape, color, form, and line to create a composition. At the heart of his paintings is a visceral premonition where colors are intuitive and gestures are prompt, uninhibited, and vigorous. Layers of ink, pencil, and glaze are added to complete the composition. What Eric is most interested in sharing with the viewer is a sensation more so than a statement.
