Eric Zetterquist | Object Portraits by Eric Zetterquist 

©Eric Zetterquist

Eric Zetterquist (1962- ) studied contemporary photographic expression and oriental antique art while working for Japanese modern artist Hiroshi Sugimoto (1948- ) for 10 years until 1992. Today he is based in New York. “Object Portraits”, mainly portraits of antique ceramics, is a series of highly sophisticated, abstract expressions of the details of antique ceramics. Zetterquist describes this series as an “East-Meets-West and Old-Meets-New” project, and mentions that he was inspired by hard-edge artworks and Song ceramics. In fact, some of his works suggest influence of Song landscape paintings while other works are reminiscent of modernist composition as exemplified in Alexander Calder (1898-1976) ’s works.
