Britt Ehringer

Britt Ehringer lives and works on a fifty-acre ranch nestled in the hills of San Bernardino Mountains near the town of Yucaipa, California, an hour East of Los Angeles. He does this because the paintings he makes require that he be sufficiently removed from the bustle of the city to be able to think clearly about what it all means. The clash between worlds, islands, chambers of marvels, biotopes and ideas - the subatomic weather of everyday life. To paraphrase Philip K. Dick, we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups. Unceasingly we are bombarded with sophisticated pseudo-realities. In Ehringer's work he investigates the layers of perception in a search for what is real.
