Pushpin Art by Eric Daigh
born in 1977, Orange, CA, American artist Eric Colin Daigh is a the son of a painter and a dental hygienist. He lives and works in Northern Michigan with his wife and son. Using push pins, the innocuous, adhesive, near-detritus of our everyday Eric creates stunning portraits. His work is that rare aerial perspective of the faces we see everyday, the vistas of common personalities, the long view of the human.
According to the artist, he enjoys very much making something digital with his hands. Besides, he enjoys making work that requires a physical proximity. “I enjoy the fact that this work travels from the intangible, the binary, to the tactile, the singular. By invoking these mediums, I hope to generate a dialogue and sentiment that has something to do with the effort, repetition, focus, discipline, absurdity, and love that went into its making”.
