ABOUT THE ARTIST
Eric Garner was born in Van Nuys, California in 1967, and grew up in Southern California and McLean, Virginia. He received a BAS in studio art and civil engineering from Stanford University in 1989 and an MS in civil engineering from Stanford in 1990. He served on active duty in the United States Air Force until 1993, and following, has worked in the commercial construction industry, managing building projects in Seattle, San Jose, Miami, and the Washington DC area. He completed his MFA degree in 2004 at the University of Maryland.


Garner’s urban landscape series began in 2009. The paintings reflect an interest in suburbanization and infrastructure design conventions, but also stem from an appreciation of the formalism and patterning found in American quilts, Islamic arts, and African textiles. Garner’s work is frequently reminiscent of Russian constructivism. He has exhibited his work at the Don O’Melveny Gallery in Los Angeles, the Kingston Gallery in Boston, at Maryland Art Place in Baltimore, and at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in New York, among other venues. He currently lives in Bethesda, MD, with his wife Karin and their two boys.
