Eric Blum bypasses conscious decisions by blindly selecting his initial guidelines from random sources. The designated forms of the first layers are put through a process of rotating and flipping, covering and uncovering, overlapping, excising and splicing...ultimately reordering it’s original elements into a kind of visual anagram. That’s usually when it appears to have been made by someone else’s hand. He is looking for unexpected juxtapositions and an awkward harmony…with menacing undercurrents that don’t make a nuisance of themselves.
