A master of American Hyperrealism – Don Eddy
Museo Europeo de Arte Moderno (MEAM)
Tomorrow sees the opening of new exhibition ´A master of American Hyperrealism: Don Eddy´ at the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM). Don Eddy is an American painter that is famous for his photorealist work, he is considered to be a maestro of hyperrealism itself among his peers.
Don Eddy´s earlier work in the 1960s was very much a part of a new concept where artists focussed more on immersing themselves and capturing the surrounding of their objects. He juxtaposes images that work in poetic relationship to one another, which Eddy refers to as connections of structure “echoing ecosystems” which anchor and join the panels together.
For the first time ever, you will be able to see his works in Spain. Eddy utilizes the airbrush painting and thousands of dots of color. Instead of only using a single photograph, he gathers over 40 images to ensure that he has the sharpest and most clear image possible. The exhibition showcases works spanning across four decades, with polptychs formats and a variety of other media. Take advantage and see these exhibits that are instrumental for realistic conceptual art. Image © MEAM
