Eric Wert (American, b. 1976)
The Arrangement, 2015

Eric Wert’s Arrangement is an elegant floral riot, a hyperrealistic cascade of texture, shadow, and saturated color. It represents what the painter is best known for: visually intense, sensually charged still lifes that are anything but still.

Wert began his career as a scientific illustrator. Influenced by Dutch still life painters, he uses stunning jewel tones to depict decadent subject matter, taking traditional compositions in new directions. His expertly shaped fruits, vegetables, and flowers approach realism but go beyond its limitations.

Wert received a bachelor of fine arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a master of fine arts degree from Northwestern University. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

With subjects ranging from fine art, nature, and architecture to humor, the metaphysical, and more, Pomegranate’s interlocking jigsaw puzzles combine stunning images, superb color reproduction, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzle solvers alike.

WARNING: Choking hazard—small parts. Not suitable for children under 3 years.


Eric Wert: Still Life chronicles the artist's rise to maturity, from otherworldly graphite drawings of cacti to the stunning oil paintings he is now known for. In essays, critic Richard Speer details Wert's artistic evolution, and longtime friend Shawn Vandor places Wert's art within a wider academic and cultural context. Finally, the artist details his meticulous process, providing a rare peek at the way these dripping, tumbling, tangled, restless depictions of flowers and produce are made.
