From his earliest work with glass to the stunning aerial panoramas of Maine islands that have gained him far-reaching fame, Eric Hopkins has consistently explored boundaries-of medium, of space, of vision. Nurtured on North Haven Island, Hopkins attended the Rhode Island School of Design and the Montserrat College of Art and taught at the Haystack School of Crafts; an important mentor along the way was glass master Dale Chihuly. Taking to the air in the early 1980s, he developed those signature views coveted by collectors: energized renderings of coastal motifs, in which horizons bend and an archipelago of spruce-topped isles spreads across the canvas. Eric Hopkins: Above and Beyond is the first book to present a wide range of the breathtaking work of an eminent American artist.
