CFA: What themes does your work deal with?
E.R.: Fantasy, psychedelia, human figure, city landscapes
CFA: What influences your art? What inspires you? Why do you make art?
E.R.: Music heavily influences the art I make. I have to have music playing otherwise my work would not contain the amount of "flow" and gesture it contains. I make art because, quite frankly, I have to. It's a release of every part of who I am and is necessary for me to be happy.
CFA: What is art? What makes a piece of art great?
E.R.: Art is an expression of your perception of the world, and all the experiences you've had thus far within it. A great piece of art is honest and connects with others in a way that is free from any pride.
CFA: What is the role of the artist today?
E.R.: The role of the artist today is to not only speak on the worldwide topics at hand - in nature, in religion, in politics, in technology - but also I think another valid role is to give everyone a beautiful space to introspect.
