ARTWORK BY ERIC ZENER
In collaboration with Art Publishing, Ltd.
In much the same way that the Renaissance movement spanning the 14th to the 17th centuries in Europe represented the pursuits of intellectual and artistic reform and departure, Zener, a figurative realist’s work shows courage in his own departure from modern contrivances in thought, shape and form. Zener shows us the hyper-reality of what lies before us, but within his photorealist images, shows us also what might be there as well – the conflict behind intent, the question before action or inaction. The intellectual process that is adjoined to decision-making is ever-present within each of his pieces, lurking in the depth of our minds. It is fitting that the man behind the work is as complex as the characters and environments he renders, captured at the precipice of transformation.
