Eric Robert Dallimore is a contemporary artist whose primary medium is woodworking, but also employs a variety of surprising materials in his driven works of art. His work is often a comment on current political-social narratives and environmentalism in the modern era. His most recent work focuses on the divisive nature of our country and has begun to incorporate aspects of performance art into his stoic, large scale sculptures and installations. Eric is also the founder and artistic director of Leon, a leading-edge gallery that intentionally challenges limitations, and provides an environment for artistic exploration that is free from the market pressure and economic constraints of commercial galleries.
