Coming up next month on the 14th, the Culver City location of the Lebasse Projects will be hosting a solo show from Eric Fortune (interviewed). Last we saw of the Ohio-based painter, it was the end of 2010 and he was showing at the same space alongside Nate Frizzell. The new body of work deals with characters in transition between the known and the unknown, all rendered with his time-consuming “glazing” technique infusing each piece with subtle details and luminous lighting.

For Into the Depths, the Pittsburgh-based artist will be exploring a new process in creating his works.

He’s also incorporating local flora into the paintings, which will see his signature characters peeking out from behind real cattails […]
