Eric Zammitt

Material Distillation, Eric Zammitt’s first solo exhibition at David Richard Gallery, includes a selection of paintings and sculptures made of acrylic plastic. More specifically, they are comprised of thousands of individual square pieces of cut acrylic plastic in various combinations and arrays that, when assembled and polished, create spectacular geometric patterns, rhythms and abstract imagery. Beyond the physicality and process of Zammitt’s paintings and sculptures, his art making practice is more about color, light and energy, not only from formal perspectives, but to evoke a sense of nature and one’s emotions and spirituality.

Eric Zammitt has had many solo exhibitions and his work included in numerous group exhibitions in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Riverside, Houston, Santa Fe and Pusan, Korea. His artwork is in many private and public collections, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Museum of Art and History, Lancaster, CA. Recently, he completed a commission of a permanent four-story window installation created for Community Redevelopment Agency with Meta Housing Corporation for the Adams/Central Mixed Use Development, Los Angeles, CA. His exhibitions have been reviewed in the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, Coagula Art Journal and THE Magazine.
