My name is Eric Weiand and I am a visual artist and maker based in the rolling hillsides of Northwest Illinois. I work mainly in acrylics on panel. My paintings, while based on landscapes, do not present an entirely recognizable form. The results I achieve through abstraction are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes left entirely to the viewer. I use color, form and the general impression of a landscape to gently guide the viewer to their own emotional response.
