Interview with Eric Hibit

q)Who are you? Where are you from and where do you live now?

a)I was born in Rochester, NY, in western part of the state. This is also where I spent my childhood. Now I’m in NYC.

q)What is it that you do? What media do you use?

a)I do acrylic paintings on paper. I also do sculptural paintings, made by stretching fabric over wire armatures.

q)What do you think sets your work apart?

a)Sensibility is what sets any artists work apart.

q)How long have you been showing your work for? Did you have a “big break?”

a)I’ve been showing my work since undergrad.

q)What are some things that have inspired you?

a)Mysteries. Nature. New York.

q)What have you been working on recently?

a)Well, recently, there is a lot going on. I am planning an installation, containing images and objects presented in a very specific way. Wish I could say more, but I can’t divulge the themes until the work is complete.

q)Do you listen to music while you create your work? If so, would you give some examples?

a)Well, my musical tastes are not very evolved. I’m really an idiot about music, always been. As a teenager I had no sense for what was cool. People had to really spell it out for me, I had no idea. The contents of my ipod are truly too humiliating to list :( Next question....

q)Do you do work in any other media? Other projects not necessarily related to your main body of work?

a)I do not work in other media.
Besides art, I enjoy running, vegetarian cooking, all types of cookies and cakes, coffee, my pet turtle Ginger, meditation and yoga, state fairs, astrology, Scrabble, excursions into nature, dancing, and interesting wines.

q)What advice do you have for artists looking to show their work?

a)Honor inspiration.

q)Do you have any upcoming exhibitions of your work that you can mention?

a)I will be ready to announce that soon.

q)Where can people see more of your work on the internet?
