Bio / Resumee / Statement:
Erik Von Ploennies began experimenting with art in 2004 (age: 35), after visiting the Guggenheim Museum - NYC and seeing Vasily Kandinsky\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s, \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Painting With White Border\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\". His formal education is in electrical engineering and has no art training. Erik left his engineering career in 2007, and moved to Brooklyn, New York in July 2007 to pursue his interests in art. He is actively exhibiting in New York City.

Artist Statement:
My work is a collage of random thoughts and inspiration layered together through a series of improvisational sessions. Much of the content comes from my everyday life experiences. The end result is sometimes convoluted and abstract. It�s similar to a dream, where things get mixed together in strange ways. My theories and interpretations are documented for every painting, but remain open to interpretation by anyone.
