Eric Zener is an American painter best known for his photorealist paintings swimmers, dancers and reflective water scenes. “The quiet landscape of a body of water or a beckoning field provides both a literal and a psychological place of discovery and confession; or simply a metaphoric snapshot for an ideal state of being.” says the artist.
Born in 1966 in Astoria, OR, Zener studied psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Shortly thereafter, Zener taught himself to paint in his spare time. His works have been exhibited in the United States and internationally, for over 20 years. In addition to exhibiting primarily in San Francisco and New York, Zener’s works have been shown throughout Asia, Australia, Europe. They are also included in numerous private and corporate collections such as: The Walt Disney Corporation, Burbank, CA; Miniatuur Museum, Amsterdam, Holland; Alfabia Museum, Sumoto, Japan to name a few.
