Original works painted and inspired from excursion into the Australian landscape in Oil, Pastel and Watercolour. More than fifty works on display at any given time ranging in size from small to large corporate works. A purpose built gallery on two levels located in a suburban setting in North Broken Hill.
Eric McCormick records heightened phenomena of the mining and pastoral industries, which exist in this place of extremes it is either, desert or deluge. He pursues the vivid and striking effects of light and thinks of colour concretely and forms it to be the central or major subject of the work. Mostly works in oil and pastel but has recently turned to watercolour a medium he is still exploring.
He enjoys camping and painting on site and travels extensively to maintain subject matter to Central Australia, Northern Territory and Western Australia as well as the West Darling Region.
Eric’s work is found in private and corporate collections in Australia and overseas.
