Parallax: a displacement or difference in the apparent position of an object viewed along two different lines of sight.

In the current exhibit at Gallery 81435 that runs through September, Telluride artist William Eckert explores the concept of perspective through a series of bold, large-scale, abstract paintings.  Using latex paint and oil stick on canvas, in four by four and five by five feet format, the artist has moved soundly into an abstract mode.

William began producing artwork at the advent of WW Iraq, most of which was political statement in various forms of metals, steel and copper foil.  The current exhibit represents a shift away from the political to a commentary on the place of icons within American culture.


Join Telluride Arts for an opening reception with the artist during Telluride Art Walk on Thursday, September 5, from 5-8pm. The exhibit runs through September, and regular Gallery hours are 12-6pm.
