“Fractured Moments of Time”: Conveying the Passing of Time and Emotions Through Fragmented Compositions by Eric Pause
Eric Pause is a Canadian artist who uses geometrical shapes to create acrylic paintings that capture “fractured moments of time.” The artist’s goal is to “capture multiple moments and splice them into a single image” and give viewers a sense of the passage of time compared to viewing a single moment.
Pause has a background in graffiti, where he started his artistic journey as a teenager. This medium allowed him to broaden his horizons regarding the possibilities of art. In the following years, the Ontario native experimented with different techniques and materials, which led to him finding his own voice as an artist.
