Knoxville, TN | Painting
Hello, my name is Eric Cagley. I am from Clinton, Iowa. I received my BFA in 2011 from the University of Iowa and my MFA in 2014 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I currently live and work in Knoxville, Tennessee where I am the Exhibition Coordinator at the Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture.
My paintings are constructed using thick sheets of acrylic paint that I cut and arrange on canvas. The visual language of sports has heavily influenced my work: white lines on a field, patterns cut into the grass, and the uniforms/colors of my favorite teams can often be found in my work.
