After a series in mixed techniques, in which I made objects with a religious/ritual background, I started my ‘Habitats’, architectural objects that show how people all over the world shape or could shape their buildings. In the end this lead to the ‘Favela’s ‘ (piled up slums), that have been my main subject for a long time. I use cardboard, wood, textiles and organic things like palm leaves, branches, cocos and cactus. The theme of Habitats fascinates me most and has therefore become my main subject. Being an artist for me is a great adventure.
Eric and his artwork
Mixed media, often wood and cardboard.
If things can’t be done the way they should, then they should be done the way they can. Apparent failures may be the source of new discoveries.
I am fascinated by all kinds of living spaces, both in reality and coming from my fantasy. Therefore, I call my artworks ‘Habitats.’
Reation to Expo
All Cremers’ artworks as shown in this exhibition are the result of the many travels he made. Great differences in culture cause an even greater fascination for other countries.
