Represented by Nancy Hoffman Gallery in New York, Don Eddy juxtaposes his painted snapshots to create multi-faced works that feed the viewer a sequence with which one can find infinite contrasts, similarities, and dialogues. Don Eddy was born in Long Beach, Los Angeles, California and went on to receive his BFA and MFA in Hawaii before returning to California for postgraduate studies. The artist was one of the leaders for photorealistic paintings in the 1970s along with his famous contemporary, Chuck Close. His works blend the immediately apparent effects of altarpiece art as well as photorealism. At first glance the works don’t appear to be paintings at all because they so perfectly recapture what one is used to seeing digitally or on film. Eddy goes even further in his artistic endeavors and makes his works of art more engaging by organizing his paintings in geometric formations, bringing out relations, and making matches between both the natural and the manmade that provoke interesting dialogue.
