Mark & Elena Erickson Bio

Mark & Elena Erickson, American & Swiss

Mark Erickson has a double love affair – one with his wife, Elena, and one with paint. His wife Elena is a Swiss-born Artist/Poet and their relationship has led to a remarkable collaboration. Employing a veritable toolbox of modified brushes, pallet knives, air brush tools, all lying side by side with a multitude of found and homemade objects, Mark and Elena have gone on a journey of imagination together through the medium of paint.

In their collaborations, paint is given the power to visually echo their shared experiences, environment and emotions. According to Mark, “life and the place one works in get into the paintings; works overflow in graphic pop reasonings, psychedelic twists and turns of events concrete in our imagination.”

The joy inherent in this collaboration is palpable; the works push the limits of what paint can do to act upon our minds and hearts.
