Thrown Away in China. Disposability is now associated with convenience and efficiency. This is false. It robs everything we interact with of deeper meaning. It lazily passes over the inherent value in all things. That which we throw away is not gone. It’s Simply ignored by the ignorant. Eriq is currently focused on weaving ephemera into upcycled works, that promote reframing perspectives. He finds kinship with the discarded and discounted materials he employs. A student of OTIS College of Art and Design and UCLA Fine Arts prepared him for an expansive and varied career, which has included commissions in Bronze, as well as fine art originals and prints for Corporate clients. Eriq's work can be found in noteable collections throughout the world, which are playful, melancholy examples of his nimble curiosity. “Perspective is paramount. I see visual relationships that I commune with through my work. I expose the underserved aspects of a disjointed reality, that I weave together, to tell the story, of us”. Eriq Henri Madsen
