Wilson Building, Dallas

Wilson Building, Dallas (1904) is a print of the famous business building in downtown Dallas. This piece comes from a series of art of Dallas Scenes. which are the creations of Eric Hanson. The Wilson Building was home to the Titche-Goettinger Department Store until 1929.

Eric explaining his art, “Having come from a graphic design background — where precision and mass reproduction are defining characteristics — my paintings are a way for me to experiment with spontaneity and uniqueness.  I enjoy taking relatively ordinary subjects and giving them life.  With my Dallas Paintings, I attempt to capture my surroundings and present them with a life which might otherwise go unnoticed. I enjoy living in Dallas and have found that my paintings help give people a greater appreciation for the architecture which they may have previously taken for granted.

I often prefer to intentionally limit my color palette.  This began as a way to reduce my load of supplies as I biked to my painting locations, but it then turned into a challenge to see how much I could accomplish within my self-imposed limitations.  Another habit of mine is that I rarely mix my paint colors together and, when I do, it’s always done on the canvas.  This also began as a matter of convenience which I later incorporated into my style.”

Eric painted the original in acrylics on 10″ x 8″ canvas board on February 29, 2015. The print is on 10″ x 8″ matte cardstock. This is one of Hanson’s earlier Dallas pieces, prior to establishing some of his consistent design elements.
