Like the masterpieces of surrealism, Eric Degos’ whimsical tableaux present otherworldly beings. In his case these are hybrids of flowers, people and other animals. In addition to the delightful and dreamlike creatures that Degos presents to us, a closer look at the impressive composition of the works reveals his innate sensitivity to color and layout. The rich tones that intermingle on his canvas help support his unique vision of life’s experiences as an equal blend of reality and fantasy. A beautiful mix of earthy greens and vivid reds as well as blues and bright yellows all convey a feeling of tranquility and charm.
Although his subject matter is the created beings of Eric’s imagination, the message the art conveys is certainly one of hope and peace and an embrace of the earth as a source of sustenance and happiness. Eric Degos’ work is a gorgeous expression both of the creative spirit and a love of the world we all share.
