Insubstantial Pageant/ oil on canvas 80 x 66"


A self-taught painter, Eric Karpeles has worked in one studio or another for five decades, pursuing his craft far from the market-driven posturings of "the art world." Drawing is an integral part of his process, as is direct experience of great artworks near and far. He welcomes interest in his paintings from individuals, collectors, designers, and architects confident enough to decide what engages and touches them without the validation of a commercial intermediary.

Karpeles enjoys working with clients to create commissioned paintings for site specific installation.
