Eric Dever (born, Los Angeles, 1962) moved to New York in 1986 to study painting and critical theory at NYU/Steinhardt (MA’88-studio art). His work since the early 1990’s has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally. Dever is represented by Berry Campbell Gallery, New York.
For more than a decade, Dever employed a square canvas and limited palette, white for four years, then white and black for two years, and since then white, black, and red. Uncovering a staggering amount of variety, both in hue and composition, it was an exercise most notable when the works were placed together, each painting holding its own.
