Eric Aho has quickly become one of the nation's top artists working today. Always fresh and vibrant, his paintings evoke familiarity with a heightened sense of atmosphere. Using dynamic brushwork and a memory-based approach, the artist strives to capture the essential equivalent of his natural experience. Each brushstroke reveals a keen understanding of sophistication through austerity. The artist resides in New England, but a Fulbright Scholarship took him to his ancestral land of Finland where he continues to visit yearly. The Tory Folliard Gallery has been proud to represent the artist since 1999.
Aho’s recent museum exhibitions include the Nagoya/Boston Museum of Fine Arts in Japan; the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, CT; the National Academy Museum in New York City; the Fitchburg Art Museum, MA; the Fleming Museum at the University of Vermont and the Hood Museum at Dartmouth College.
His work is represented in collections throughout the country including the Metropolitan Museum, New York, NY; the Fleming Museum; the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston; the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; the Boston Public Library; the New York Public Library; the Ogunquit Museum of American Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
