Eric Croes: The Gods Must Be Crazy

Richard Heller Gallery is pleased to present: Eric Croes: The Gods Must Be Crazy. This is Croes' second solo exhibition with the gallery.

Eric Croes creates a procession of singular works, a fresco of characters coming straight from his studio and his imagination. Inspired by his true and dreamed travels — from Southern Italy to California, Egypt or Belgium — by iconic figures — from Janus to Cleopatra — by traditions and folklore — from Roman votive hands to sailor tattoos — but also by his impressions and sensations. He mixes and melts them, knots and recomposes his visions through ceramic. Croes shows an intimate and unique mythology. A universe filled with symbols, stories and poetry.
