Current Exhibition at CFD
Eric Waldemar teaches drawing, design, digital painting, and interdisciplinary courses in the College of Arts & Media at CU Denver. His paintings, prints, and drawings range from gestural abstraction, to intricate board games, to unnerving animals and tranquil landscapes. His film and video work includes abstract hand-painted animation, alternate histories, such as The Origin of Music (1994), and personal, contemplative works like The Thinking Truck (2008), which combines animation, narrative, and visual music. His aesthetic was profoundly shaped by close friendships with artists Homare Ikeda, Stan Brakhage, and Harry Smith. His work has been exhibited worldwide; selected venues include the Denver Art Museum, CU Boulder, STARZ Denver International Film Festival, Redline Denver, Chicago Filmmakers, Wandesford Quay and San Francisco Cinematheque.
