Ecke’s compositions are based on abstractions. Each painting’s quality lied in is power to suggest many rich and varied analogies, however diverse they may be. The works are rich in inspired concepts that follow a stream of thought has always fascinated the artist. With his series “Quadrants”, Ecke continues to examine the abstract notions of time, space, thought, the philosophy of color and their relationship to the human experience. The group of paintings assembled for this exhibition, “Quadrants”, deals directly with four stages of man’s spiritual development. The viewer can see throughout this series a delineation of the works into panels or segments that make up an entire piece.
