E.R. Gott has been involved in the arts communities of Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle for more than ten years. Starting with a three year art residency with the Hawkeye Gallery in Seattle, WA, in 2002, he has been involved in fourteen group shows; 5 solo shows hosted by a variety of galleries, including the Hawkeye Gallery of Seattle, WA; Victoria, BC’s Fifty Fifty Arts Collective, The Ministry of Casual Living; and most recently, Victoria’s Integrate Arts Festival.
“As an Artist I believe one purpose of art is to communicate social, cultural and emotional observations while at the same time allowing both the painter and the viewer to commune/play with what Jung called our collective unconscious. Basing my art’s 'language' on the appropriation of pop and cultural icons and an intentional unrefined stencil/clip art based technique, I ultimately try to create something which will engage, enrage, shock and make the viewer question our collective social and personal values.”
