Eric Valosin is a New Jersey based artist and seeker of the techno-sublime. Using light and projection with drawing, painting, and new media, he explores the potentials of mystical experience since postmodernism, in a world whose space is more often cyber than sacred and whose world-views have begun to transcend conventional transcendence. Straddling the realms of traditional mysticism and postmodern phenomenology, he aims to challenge perceptual expectations and open new territories for contemporary mystical experience.
Valosin holds a B.A. in Studio Art from Drew University and an M.F.A. from Montclair State University. His work has been exhibited throughout the greater New York area and in Europe, including recent shows at Magnan Metz Gallery (NYC), The Attleboro Arts Museum (MA), Gallery Aferro (NJ), Howard Gardens Gallery (Wales, UK), FUSE Art Infrastructures (PA), Seton Hall Universitys Walsh Gallery (NJ) and R.Jampol Project(s) (NYC). His work has received various accolades such as an international ArtSlant Showcase award in the category of Installation. Valosin is the author of a recently published monograph entitled Unknowing the Unknowable: Visual Apophasis and the Techno Sublime, and is a contributing editor for the New Jersey art blog NotWhatItIs.com. He is an adjunct professor at The College of St. Elizabeth (NJ), teaches regularly at the Collective Art Tank in Asbury Park (NJ), and has lectured at Drew University (NJ) and Andover Newton Theological School (MA). He also serves as the Coordinator of Fine Art Education for Gravity Inc., a non-profit which uses art and innovation as a catalyst for community revitalization.
