My dear client Eric Pickersgill flew in to New York for his first major solo exhibition, which opened at Rick Wester Fine Art, in Chelsea on March 24, 2016. Rick Wester is visionary, and so he signed Eric right away after his "Removed" series went viral, reinforcing the powerful ability of Eric's topical photographs to live outside of the screen. I always got a kick out of the fact that Eric photographed on a large format film camera to comment on device use and finally seeing his images as large prints after looking at them over and over again online was completely refreshing! The impact of the work on paper is even more monumental.
