Michael Eder paints emotional and expressionistic oil landscapes from nature and from photos of war and conflict.  “They relate to me in that they happened in my life-time, they formed my American self, they formed my family and my history.”  Subjects include Vietnam, Gettysburg, and Apartheid.  

“You corpse I think you are good manure ... I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love.”
