Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building presents Stories in Ink: The Art of Eric Ray

Artist bio: Eric Ray was born in Southern California and studied art and illustration at Art Center and California State University, Long Beach. After working as a freelance illustrator and art director for many years, he moved to Springfield, Missouri. He worked there as a senior art director and illustrator for a couple more decades. Eric currently works as a pen and ink artist creating commissioned artwork, showing in a number of galleries, and taking on illustration projects that interest him.

Show Statement: “Creating my work is both a struggle and a labor of love. I choose to work in Pen and Ink because it is not a simple media to master and is also relatively uncommon. I strive to develop art with a feel for the subject matter and the story I wish to tell. The search for the beauty in the complexity of form, pattern and texture is important. I enjoy creating visual shortcuts, innuendo and suggestion balanced against insanely detailed rendering in my pen work. I intentionally mix drawing styles and textures to best honor my subjects. I accept the challenge of exploring the limits of using a black pen on a white surface, and relentlessly pushing those limits around.”
