Erik Von Ploennies
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope



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.
