About The Artwork

The Mr. Yuk image was created by a pediatrician in the 1970s as an image to warn children away from household chemicals. Previously a "skull and crossbones" mark was used but it was felt that the skull lost its hazard value. The pediatrician succeeded in creating a memorable mark but ultimately failed because of Mr. Yuk's cuteness. This is a large format (4 ft square) abstract painting with the mark reproduced by hand.

Eric Roberts combines screen printing, painting, and software to create large modern paintings with color, repetition, and texture as focuses. “I’m interested in using regular, repeatable techniques with software and screenprint and then adding the unpredictability of painting to it to produce to “+” works – works that are more than abstract paintings, works that are more than prints. I try to temper and soften the industrial, tech heavy perspective (computer icons, drugs, scientific chemical structures) with a certain playfulness and sensuality (bees and nature, a young woman’s heartbreak, softer impressionist textures, pink).” Self taught, Eric holds two engineering degrees and an MBA. He lives with his wife and son in just north of Atlanta in Johns Creek.
