Eric Wert Nimbus – 1000 Piece Puzzle
Eric Wert (American, b. 1976) Nimbus Seeming to glow from within, Eric Wert’s Nimbus revels in fine detail, from the petals of the toppled arrangement to the fabric wrinkled by stitches in the background embroidery. Wert started his career as a scientific illustrator, and this 1000-piece puzzle shows off his style of visually intense, sensually charged still lifes that are anything but still.
About the Artist Eric Wert
In his Portland, Oregon, studio, Eric Wert (American, b. 1976) creates still lifes that are the hyperrealistic stuff of dreams. In a veritable flood of sensual detail, he pulls the genre out of the Dutch Golden Age. Wert honed his observation skills as a scientific illustrator at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. Before long he broke away to create oil paintings of flowers, fruits, and vegetables that defy traditional constraints. He uses stunning jewel tones to depict decadent subject matter, with natural and manmade objects arranged as a tumultuous comment on the wonders of life and death. Bees, butterflies, snakes, and other critters find their place in Wert’s work—a modern master’s complex observation of natural mysteries.
