Eric Ziner has been sculpting for thirty years. He began while still in high school, helping his father, Zeke Ziner, also an artist/sculptor. He helped with fabrication and assembly and then moved out on his own. He is primarily self taught and has also learned from apprenticeships . His vision incorporates humor and wit that he hopes will inspire a second or third glance and reward the viewer with a meaningful presentation of objects, assembled with a cohesive theme. Ziner hopes that his work "will provide future viewers with a glimpse of a bygone era, with this century's narratives in a transformed state." He lives and works on Deer Isle, Maine, where he runs the Greene-Ziner gallery with his artist wife, Melissa Greene.
