Q&A With The Artist

Eric Dolezalik

What are your ear­li­est mem­o­ries relat­ed to art?
I remem­ber tak­ing pic­tures with my par­ents’ 35mm camera.

How and when did you start becom­ing an artist your­self?
It prob­a­bly start­ed in mid­dle school in art class. I real­ly enjoyed cre­at­ing things out of clay and just art class in general.

What was the evo­lu­tion like toward find­ing your cur­rent voice and visu­al vocab­u­lary?
It has been a slow grad­ual process. I have always enjoyed tak­ing pic­tures of moments of my life and of things that I found beau­ti­ful. I slow­ly learned more and more about the pho­tog­ra­phy process which allowed me to cap­ture more breath­tak­ing pic­tures. My evo­lu­tion is still con­tin­u­ing and I am still thriv­ing to learn about the process.

What is your process like?
Most of the time I try to find a loca­tion that has fea­tures that cap­ture my eye. Once I find those loca­tions I will thor­ough­ly go through the loca­tion until I am sat­is­fied with what I have cap­tured. Oth­er times it will be spon­ta­neous and I will just go out with my cam­era and cap­ture what­ev­er I come across.

Is there any­thing from your artist state­ment that you wish to expound on, that you nor­mal­ly don’t have the chance to dis­cuss?
Not at the moment.

What do you try to con­trol in your sur­faces, and what do you leave to chance?
I try to cap­ture the images how­ev­er I find them. I try my best to not manip­u­late the area. I do con­trol how the image turns out through pho­to­shop or light­room, but in the process I try to make it as life­like and nor­mal as if you were there see­ing it yourself.

Where do you see your work going from here?
I would love to be able to shoot for some sort of pho­tog­ra­phy mag­a­zine or com­pa­ny, prefer­ably deal­ing with wildlife or nature.
